Thank you for considering my question. There is a criminal who has been tried in court and proven guilty and received sentences for a series of crimes including threat to kill and withdrawing money from accounts illegally. He has managed to escape from Iran to Canada legally with a work permit and also transfer the money he stole to Canada. Googling this case has no result since there is no treaty between the two countries. But I am sure there must be some way to bring the criminal back to justice. Especially because as long as he feels safe in Canada and is sure he will not be extradited, lives are in danger here (He pays people here to do the job for him).
I am no lawyer, but as a citizen who has been involved in the issue for over a year, these are the only course of actions coming to my mind:
- Contact the immigration authorities to prevent him from obtaining citizenship of Canada and extending the visa.
- Try to contact the Canadian prosecutor and ask them to consider this case. Even though there is no treaty between the two countries, I believe it does not mean Canada wants to host dangerous Criminals and help them escape justice and the prosecutor might be willing to investigate at least.
Am I thinking correctly? Any other suggestions?
Please consider that hiring a lawyer who is willing to charge me BEFORE I get my money back from this criminal (which is quite a considerable amount of money, well, basically, my whole 20 years of work savings!!), cannot be an option for me. Of course after I have my hand on my money, I am willing to pay all the expenses.
Thanks every one in advance.
