Deportation of serial rapist Louay Khalil to Lebanon, accused of assaulting mentally challenged woman

Khalil’s entry into Canada was made possible by marrying his own cousin

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.

Xristos Katsiroubas, left, and Ali Medlej.
There are no straightforward answers when it comes to understanding what led Xristos Katsiroubas and Ali Medlej to abandon their lives in London, Ont., to join an Al-Qaida-linked militant group that attacked and took hostages at an Algerian gas plant.

The two boys have been described recently as average, everyday-type Canadians. That seemed to be the case right up until shortly before they flew overseas and died in the Algerian attack in January.

CBC News reported on Wednesday that a third schoolmate had travelled with the pair to North Africa and was jailed shortly before his cohorts died participating in the attack in Algeria.

Aaron Yoon was another average Canuck, a boy of Korean descent who was quiet and friendly and converted to Islam in his final year of high school.
