Edmonton, Alberta, November 13, 2009 – The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) today confirmed the deportation of Samuel Martin Luin. The Edmonton resident was deported under escort by CBSA officers on November 9, 2009.
Mr. Luin was convicted of 17 offences including sexual assault and assault causing bodily harm. He was also convicted of assaulting a peace officer while incarcerated.
“This Government has consistently put the rights of victims first,” said Public Safety Minister Peter Van Loan. "I welcome the news that CBSA has successfully removed this serious criminal from Canada. This removal sends a clear message that our efforts to combat crime and make our communities safe are working."
Foreign nationals who pose a threat to the safety and security of Canadians are not welcome in Canada. The CBSA works diligently to enforce removal orders against foreign nationals who have been convicted of serious crimes.
