ith the arrest of a fifth suspected war criminal this week, the Conservative Government's decision to publicize the names and photos of 30 suspected war criminals was the right one, says Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP, Mark Strahl.

 

"We received a strong mandate from Canadians to keep our streets and neighbourhoods safe. Thanks to help from the public, five suspected war criminals are longer on the street." Strahl added, "I believe this is a very good start."

On July 21, the Government released the identity of 30 individuals subject to an active Canada-wide warrant for removal because they are inadmissible to Canada. It has been determined that they violated human or international rights under the Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes Act or under international law.
"Those who abuse our immigration system will be brought to justice," said Strahl.

Members of the public are reminded that they should not take action to apprehend the individuals listed on the web site. Any information on the whereabouts of these wanted individuals should be reported to the CBSA Border Watch Line at 1-888-502-9060.
