OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/02/14 -- The Honourable Steven Blaney, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, and Canada's Minister for Citizenship and Immigration Chris Alexander today commended the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) for its investigation leading to charges against two individuals and a company for immigration fraud in Montreal. CBSA today announced that Rafic Mansour, Meryem El-Hassani, and the company Methode & Systemes de donnees, Figures inc. were charged with offences under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) and the Criminal Code.
"I would like to commend the Canada Border Services Agency on their diligent work that led to these arrests and charges," said Minister Blaney. "Our Government remains committed to identifying and charging fraudulent immigration consultants who take advantage of our country's laws."
"It is clear that a lot of hard work and dedication led to the charges against these individuals," said Minister Alexander. "Our government is sending a very strong message to fraudulent immigration consultants: we will not tolerate abuse of Canada's generous immigration system. Our government will continue to take action to protect the integrity of our immigration system and ensure that those who break the rules face the full force of the law."
