Canada (Ministre de la Citoyenne & de l’Immigration) c Abou-Zahra

Decider: Simon Noel J.

Court: Federal Court

Citation: 2010 FC 1243

Judgment: December 9, 2010

Docket: DES-5-08

[28]           In his decision, the citizenship judge did not mention or attempt to explain the contradictions, inconsistencies and omissions that the documentary evidence revealed.

[30]           After reviewing the evidence and the citizenship judge’s reasons for decision, the Court finds that the citizenship judge did not examine, weigh and analyze the evidence, which contained major shortcomings. In these circumstances, his decision is unreasonable and the Court’s intervention is warranted. Consequently, the Court allows the appeal.
