TORONTO, Dec. 21 /CNW/ - On Thursday December 20th, Canada Border
Services Agency (CBSA) received information that a convicted sex offender had
entered Canada illegally and was residing in the Toronto area. The Toronto
based Immigration Task Force was immediately alerted, and within two hours had
located, identified, and arrested the suspect.
Gjunejet ASAN, aged 28, of Midland Avenue Toronto, was arrested and is
facing charges under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act of
misrepresentation and failure to disclose his criminal record.
It is alleged that ASAN attempted to lure a 14 year old girl over the
Internet while in the US State of New Jersey. The "girl" was in fact an
undercover US police officer. ASAN was arrested, charged, and convicted of
this offence. He was then deported from the US to his native Macedonia.
ASAN will be held in custody pending an Immigration Hearing.
"This was very quick work, on the part of CBSA and our Immigration Task
Force members, in locating this person," stated RCMP Inspector Glenn Hanna.
"It is this type of inter-agency cooperation and good investigative work that
helps ensure public safety."
The Immigration Task Force is composed of members from the Royal Canadian
Mounted Police, Canada Border Service Agency and Provincial ROPE members from
the Ontario Provincial Police and Toronto Police Service.
