Please sign the following petition urging the Government of Canada to immediately investigate the cases of individuals charged with corruption in Iran who flee to Canada.
Dear Members and Supporters of the Iranian Canadian Congress,
Please sign the following petition urging the Government of Canada to immediately investigate the cases of individuals charged with corruption in Iran who flee to Canada. Over 4,000 people have signed the petition already. Join us and ask the Canadian government to act now:
Mahmoud Reza Khavari was a former Iranian banker who fled to Canada after a massive $2.6 billion financial fraud came to light in 2011. Our community and the Iranian Canadian Congress have raised concerns about the case of Khavari on several occasions both during the former government of Prime Minister Harper and during the time of the current Liberal government. However, Iranian-Canadians have never received any response, nor has the government taken any action on this issue.
In another case that has recently came into light, it is reported that Marjan Sheikholeslami Aleagha, who is being indicted in Iran in a massive ($10 billion) corruption case, has moved to Canada and has invested in properties and started businesses.
While these individuals have been able to move to Canada and invest their money freely, many ordinary Iranian-Canadians have been unfairly singled out in the immigration process and have been subject to banking restrictions because of their nationality and country of origin.
Our government and law enforcement agencies must prevent Canada from becoming a haven for corrupt money. This problem is not limited to Iran and Iranians. Our government must act now.
