CCLA to Minister of Immigration

“We are writing today to follow up on our letter to you of October 31, 2013 regarding the case of Deepan Budlakoti. […] The Canadian Civil Liberties Association respectfully requests that you recognize the Canadian citizenship of Deepan Budlakoti. […] Mr. Budlakoti meets the legislative requirements of a Canadian citizenship and does not fall under the exemptions. Canada should not seek to oust or deny the Canadian citizenship of Mr. Budlakoti. In denying Mr. Budlakoti Canadian citizenship, Canada has rendered him stateless, a breach under the 1961 Convention on the Reduction of Statelessness …” – Sukanya Pillay, Executive Director and General Counsel, Canadian Civil Liberties Association.
