Case of Critical Deportation
We were approached by a client who received a deportation date coming up very soon and needed assistance in staying his deportation order. We had serious concerns in this case as if the client was removed from the country he would face a life-threatening medical condition. Despite the severe time restrictions and challenges involved, we desperately tried to procure a stay of removal for the client.
Mr. Bellissimo, was quoted as saying that he had “grave concerns about the applicant being removed from Canada”. After we successfully obtained a stay of removal, Mr. Bellissimo stated that he was “very pleased that the Federal Court agreed that this deportation should be stopped pending the ultimate resolution of the underlying litigation.”
We are happy to have contributed to the relief of the applicant, his family and the greater community by preventing a potentially life-threatening deportation.
