Hon. Kenney . Canada Minister of Citizenship and immigration
Sepehr Hajrpour is a young Iranian activist who, like thousands of other Iranians, was involved in the Iranian presidential election protests in 2009 (known as the Green Movement). As a refugee, he applied for Canadian asylum in 2009 and was denied. Currently he has requested an appeal for the decision and his application is in the midst of processing. Unfortunately however, the Canadian Immigration offices are demanding he be deported on December 11th, 2012, which seems to contradict the fairness of the appeal process since a new decision has not yet been made. It is also important to note that the translator did poorly at his deportation trial which raises concerning questions about the Canadian system and it's processes in granting refugees asylum.
We request the minister that there be a stop in his deportation, until the results from his appeal application have come through and an actual decision regarding his status has been determined.
thank you for your consideration the humanitarian cause
