OTTAWA — The Canada Border Services Agency has added five new names to its most wanted list and just days ago gave the boot to criminal Damion Rami Butler more than four months after he was apprehended in Toronto.
The latest additions include Ibrahima Isse, 46, of Senegal who is wanted for war crimes and Patrick Octaves de Florimonte, 34, of Guyana, who is considered inadmissible due to a slew of assault, dangerous driving and drug trafficking convictions in Canada.
Also added to the list:
• Kemford Sebastian Durrant, 32, of St. Vincent and the Grenadines who is inadmissible due to convictions for theft, mischief, possession of a narcotic substance, assault with intent to resist arrest, uttering threats and failure to comply with recognizance.
• Otto Horvath Bors, 43, of Hungary who is inadmissible for failing to comply with the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act. Media reports have indicated he took off from Toronto’s Pearson Airport when he was being deported to face fraud charges in his homeland.
• Homayoon Pooli, 36, of Iran who is considered inadmissible having been convicted of kidnapping, assault with a weapon and uttering threats.
Butler was arrested arrested in January by the RCMP. He’d been convicted of drug trafficking and mischief over $5,000, among other run-ins with the law, and was finally deported last Thursday.
According to the Canada Border Services Agency, Canadians have so far helped locate 25 individuals in Canada, 19 of whom have been removed. Five others were located abroad.
The success of this initiative is a confirmation that Canadians believe in making our communities safer. I commend law enforcement agencies and members of the public who have worked together to identify and locate those who commit crimes and attempt to evade justice,” Public Safety Minister Vic Toews said in a statement.
“Together, these measures are sending a strong message that Canada will not be home to those who come to this country with ill intent.”
