Dear UKES and s.c.u netters:
DESCROCK.005; 1995-01-31
     The article below, from today's Montreal Gazette, appears to confirm the
concerns that I expressed in my last posting on the issue of war crimes. This
posting and several others on the issue are archived at
http://meltingpot.fortunecity.com/pakistan/83/demjanjuk/demjanjukfiles.html ,
in particular, the files DESCROCK.005 and DESCROCK.A09.
     The item was covered on the CTV 11:00 p.m. News last night, which included
short interviews of Mr. Sokolyk, (presumably) of the Ukrainian Canadian
Congress, and of Irving Abella of the Canadian Jewish Congress.
     It was also covered on the CBC 8:00 a.m. Radio News this morning, where
once again Mr. Abella complained that the whole Canadian war crimes effort was
underfunded and that "the clock was ticking".

Ottawa wants to deport 4 war-crime suspects
Stephen Bindman, Southam News
Ottawa - For the first time in more than two years, the federal government is
taking action against suspected Nazi war criminals living in Canada.
     The Immigration Department is trying to deport four men suspected of
collaborating with the Nazis during World War II.
     Three suspects have already been notified of Ottawa's intention to strip
them of their Canadian citizenship and deport them.
     A fourth is a landed immigrant and has been ordered to appear at a
deportation hearing before the Immigration and Refugee Board.
     All four are believed to be from the Toronto area.
     Justice Minister Allan Rock and Immigration Minister Sergio Marchi are to
make a formal announcement today of a three-year war crimes strategy.
     The ministers will announce that at least four more cases will be launched
in the second and third years, but the exact number may vary depending on the
results of the first four.
     The four suspects, who will not be identified until court proceedings are
started, are accused of lying or concealing "material facts" about their
war-time activities when they applied to enter Canada.
Gazette, Montreal, Tuesday, January 31, 1995	page B-1

     It is a sad day for Canadians when their own government deliberately sets
out to subvert the Canadian system of jurisprudence. As I have stated countless
times previously, denaturalization and deportation has nothing to do with
justice. It is an abrogation of justice. It is just a technicality, and, in
fact, is a blueprint for injustice, as so clearly demonstrated by the case of
John Demjanjuk. 
     The only proper place to handle accusations of war crimes is in a criminal
court of law, under rigorous rules of evidence, in front of 12 jurors. Any other
venue is certain to further erode the confidence of Canadians in their system
of justice.
