Canada: Huntley to fight deportation to South Africa
Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 28, 2010
Brandon Huntley is a white man from South Africa who was granted asylum in Canada and then the decision was overturned recently by a Judge, here.
He is apparently appealing the case, here.
South African refugee seeker Brandon Huntley will appeal a decision by the Canadian Government to withdraw his right to remain in that country.
Earlier this year, a Canadian court granted the Cape Town man refugee status but later revoked its decision. His lawyer said Canadian immigration authorities were pressured by the South African government to reverse its decision.
But his lawyer on Monday said Huntley was not backing down after an appeal was lodged last week. His legal team will argue that the South African government made Canada look racist after it granted him asylum.
He was granted asylum on the basis that he was being persecuted by black people because of the high crime rate.
As I said previously, here, I think he has adequate evidence to re-open his case based on statements by a South African, rainbow nation, official who said that when returned to South Africa he will suffer the indignity of his false claims. There was no follow-up comment from the official that assured Huntley that he will be protected by the government. Sounded to me like an open invitation for open-season on Huntley.
In my opinion, Huntley committed the ultimate sin when he claimed racist persecution can be directed at whites too. I imagine the UNHCR having fits over this case.
