Original source article: Sex offender turned over to immigration authorities after deportation stalled
A man ordered deported in 2011 but who stayed in the country because of ongoing legal issues has now been handed over to immigration authorities.
Louay Khalil was ordered deported to Lebanon in 2011 for two sexual assaults in 2007.
Police say he reoffended in March 2010 and March 2012, and was rearrested.
He could not be deported until those matters were settled in court. In one case he was charged with sexual interference and sexual assault, and in the other case he was accused of sexually assaulting a developmentally disabled woman.
Both cases were stayed in court this month. On Tuesday, Khalil was handed over to the Canada Border Services Agency. He appeared briefly before an immigration hearing in Calgary on Wednesday morning, but it was delayed for a day to translate documents into Arabic.
