The federal government has announced that 20 members of a large human trafficking ring based out of Hamilton, Ont. have been deported from Canada.

The 20 deported individuals were members of the Domotor-Kolompar ring and helped run the largest proven human trafficking ring in Canada, according to the statement put out by the border agency. As of Tuesday, at least 22 members of this ring have been convicted on human trafficking charges, the BSA has confirmed. All but two were deported.

The Domotor-Kolompar family brought Hungarians from their hometown to Canada with the promise of work and a better life in the Hamilton area, Canadian officials said. But the Hungarians who came over were subjected to brutal living conditions without adequate food and forced to work construction jobs for free. The human traffickers used intimidation and threats of violence to keep their victims in line, officials said.

“This flagrant abuse of persons in our immigration system demanded a strong response,” Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney said in a news conference Tuesday. Continue reading

Two facing murder charges in beating death 

BY  ,CALGARY SUN

FIRST POSTED: | UPDATED: 

Police say an ongoing dispute led to the beating death of a man in front of a southeast strip mall.

Two men are facing murder charges following the slaying of the 18-year-old Calgarian.

On July 5 about 3:40 a.m., they arrived at a strip mall at 2936 Radcliffe Dr. S.E. where they found an unconscious man in life-threatening condition, said Staff Sgt. Colin Chisholm of the homicide unit.

It was not a random assault, he added.

“The victim and suspects were known to each other and had a long-standing dispute over a number of things,” said Chisholm.

Police, he said, couldn’t say if the confrontation was drug or gang-related.

The man identified as Ayuen Ajak Goot, or Devon Goot, died late Tuesday in hospital from head injuries.

Cause of death has been deemed blunt force trauma. Continue reading

Lawyers for the child’s parents applied to the Supreme Court Thursday morning for an emergency stay of an Alberta Court of Appeal ruling that allowed doctors to remove the girl from life support. The lawyers wanted time to file an application for the court to hear an appeal. Continue reading
