The Power Game: Zündel vs. Canada's Jewish/Zionist
A concerned Canadian citizen, Mr Frank
Schmidt, wanted clarification about the circumstances that are holding Zündel
in prison. Here is the Letter, dated June 4, 2003, from Citizenship and
Immigration Canada, that explains the foregone conclusion of the legal
battle. Holocaust orthodoxy is fighting for its life because Ernst Zündel
could bring it down.

Dear Mr Schmidt
The office of Mr Tom Wappel has kindly forwarded
to the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, the Honourable DeniCoderre,
a copy of your letter of February 21 and April 22, 2003, concerning Mr Ernst
As you may know, Mr Zundel was returned to Canada
under a Canada-US reciprocal agreement, which stipulates that each country
accept the return of individuals who entered from each other country. of the
1786 returned to the United States in 2002, most were returned under the
provisions of this agreement.
Under current legislation, anyone can seek
protection in Canada as a Convention refugee at a port of entry. The
legislation contains safeguards to prevent abuse of the process. it is
imperative that the integrity of the system is upheld. The Immigration
and Refugee Protection Act provides for the protection of genuine
refugees who come to our country, but equally provides for the return of
those found not to be refugees to their country of origin.
All persons seeking entry to Canada are examined
to determine whether they are admissible. If they are not admissible, they
are reported under the Act and could be ordered deported. If they are
admissible, they are allowed into Canada. We must remember that our system
is based on the rule of law and due process must run its course. The
Department takes action as it applies to each individual's circumstances.
The Honourable Denis Coderre, Minister of
Immigration and the Solicitor General, the Honourable Wayne Easter, have
filed a certificate with the Federal Court, stating that Mr Zundel is
inadmissible to Canada because he is a danger to the security of Canada. A
judge of the Federal Court will examine the evidence regarding the
certificate and determine whether Mr Zundel should be deported from Canada.
Mr Zundel's refugee claim has been suspended
while this matter is before the Court. if the security certificate is found
to be reasonable, he will lose his right to be heard on his refugee claim
and the court decision will result in an automatic deportation order with no
rights of appeal.
Thank you again for taking the time to bring your
views on this important issue to the Minister's attention.

*False papers used to clear detention centres, detainees claim*
Immigration officials are being accused of encouraging the use of false
passports to rid Australia of failed asylum seekers.
The allegations have been raised by former detainees.
In one case it is alleged immigration officials promised an Iraqi national
passage to Syria if his family could provide him with a false passport.
Refugee advocates claim similar incidents have been reported by six
detainees they have interviewed in different parts of Australia since 1997.
Spokesman for A Just Australia, Greg Barns, says the claims, made on the
ABC's Lateline program, must be fully investigated.
"It calls into question yet again the way in which the Department of
Immigration and those to whom it contracts, such as Australian Correctional
Management, have been dealing with our immigration system and particularly
in relation to asylum seekers," Mr Barns said.
The Department of Immigration says no allegations have been raised with it
regarding people who are not in possession of their own travel documents.
