Gambian embassy-‘taken aback’ by Canadian border agent who used irregular channels to obtain a passport for deportation

Ebrahim Toure’s lawyer started asking questions a month ago about the irregularities with a passport and birth certificate obtained by the Canada Border Services Agency to deport his client to Gambia.

At the time, the Immigration and Refugee Board’s presiding adjudicator seemed annoyed and confused by Jared Will’s line of questioning.

“I have a travel document and a travel itinerary,” said Jean-Marc McCabe, sounding exasperated. McCabe, the government-appointed judge of the quasi-judicial hearing, said it was not his job to determine if the documents were authentic or illicitly obtained.

The CBSA and its superiors at the Ministry of Public Safety were equally incurious.

They had scheduled Toure’s deportation for Dec. 11 and wanted to keep him jailed until then.

Even after confusing and evasive testimony from the CBSA officer who obtained the passport, the agency continued to seek Toure’s detention on the basis of his “imminent” removal.
