     Ontario Court of Appeal rules that jailed immigrants can challenge detention

October 21, 2015
0 COMMENTS

Ontario’s highest court has made it easier for long-term detainees from abroad, allowing them to challenge the legality of their detention in the Superior Court rather than through immigration officials. The Ontario Court of Appeal has ruled that the right to a legal challenge for immigrant detainees is a constitutional right. It stressed, however, that the ruling is not an attempt to involve the provincial court in immigration affairs, as that should be left to the Federal Court. This decision is based on the case of four foreigners that were jailed pending their deportation or extradition. They claim their detention was illegal because it was not made clear how long they would be behind bars.
