Lone Indo-Canadian On Conservatives’ “Criminal Immigrants Hunt” Caught


OTTAWA – The lone Indo-Canadian on Conservatives much hyped “Criminal Immigrants Hunt” was caught, Kerry-Lynne D. Findlay, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Justice, announced on Friday.

Satpal Singh Jhatu, the seventh individual on Canada Border Services Agency’s “Wanted” list for criminality, was arrested on October 5 in Vancouver by CBSA inland enforcement officers.

Jhatu, one of 32 individuals the Conservatives listed on the CBSA Wanted list for serious criminality, was apprehended following tips from the public.

Jhatu is inadmissible to Canada for serious criminality. He has been convicted of second degree murder and aggravated assault. Jhatu remains in the custody of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police at this time.

“I want to commend the efforts of Canada Border Services Agency and the public, whose tips led to the apprehension of this individual. The cooperation we receive from Canadians signals our collective commitment that Canada will not be home to those who try to enter or live here illegally, or who commit criminal acts and pose a threat to our citizens.

With this arrest, the Government of Canada continues to send a very clear message – that those who have serious criminal backgrounds and who enter this country under false pretenses will be found and prosecuted. We thank all citizens who help our law enforcement officials thwart those who choose to import crime to Canada.”
