Citizenship Appeal Allowed
Championing the need for procedural fairness, the Honourable Mr. Justice Phelan allowed our client’s appeal of his refused Canadian citizenship application. Working with our client, we established that his complete application for citizenship was likely not put before the Citizenship Judge deciding his application. By use of affidavit evidence, we demonstrated that this evidence was substantial and compelling, and may have led the Citizenship Judge to make a different finding.
His citizenship application has been returned to Citizenship and Immigration Canada for determination by a new Citizenship Judge.
