The immigration and Refugee Board (IRB) has significantly reduced the conditions of release for Ottawa-born Deepan Budlakoti following a rally and court appearance on Nov. 1.
“We are very glad to celebrate this small victory with Deepan,” said Lena McFarlane of the Justice for Deepan Support Committee. “However more than just removing his conditions of release, we are renewing our call for an end to his deportation order.”
Ottawa is seeking to deport Budlakoti to India, a country he has never lived in,based on misinformation about his parent’s employment status in the 1980s that are well documented in the Leveller and elsewhere.
