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

When emergency crews rushed through the front door that winter night—Jan. 21, 2014—they found white tiles covered in blood and two people clinging to life. It was a gruesome, chaotic scene, even for a seasoned paramedic. Whoever swung the blade, again and again, had already fled.

Anita Summan, who owned the home in Brampton, Ont., was lying at the bottom of the main wooden staircase, alert but fading. Summan’s daughter, in her bedroom when the assailant pounced, had sprinted to her side. “She was still alive,” says Sonali Summan, 22. “I was in a hysterical shock, trying to figure out what was going on.” Continue reading

Suspects arrested after jumping from 2nd-floor balcony

Calgary boxer Albert Onolunose is one of two people charged in connection with an alleged lottery scam.

Onolunose, 34, andAbeba Girma, 25, were arrested after police executed a search warrant at a residence on Glamis Drive S.W.

Onolunose won the Canadian middleweight championship on the professional boxing circuit in May of last year in Calgary.

Police say while officers were searching the premises, the two suspects tried to flee by jumping from a second-floor balcony. They were caught after a short foot chase.

Investigators believe the two were involved in a lottery scam in which victims received letters in the mail stating they had won a lottery.

“Prior to receiving the money they were asked to send percentages of that money, so varying percentages of that money based on taxes calculated and administrative fees, said Staff Sgt. Kristie Verheul.

Police found credit card information, mail with counterfeit postage and mailing lists inside the Calgary residence.

According to police, Canada Post located more than 5,000 letters with the same counterfeit postage which were addressed to people across Canada and the United States.

Onolunose is charged with five counts of possession of credit card data, one count of fraud over $5,000, using mail to defraud and counterfeiting stamps.

Abeba Girma is charged with one count of identity theft.

They will appear in court later this month.

In 2010 Onolunose was charged with numerous fraud and money-laundering offences, also in connection with a fake lotto scam.
