(Quebec) The Ecole nationale d’administration publique (ENAP) in Montreal, served as bail to illegal nationals from Guinea-Conakry and of seeking to enter the country, says an internal report by the Canada Border Services Agency from Canada.
The survey entitled “Project Pane”, which was completed in December 2012, highlights an illegal system to asylum seekers from Guinea to present upon arrival a temporary resident visa issued by the Embassy Canada in Conakry. “These people obtained their visas on the pretext of being representatives of the Government of Guinea entering Canada to attend a formal training at the National School of Public Administration.”
In his report to the Commission on immigration for the examination of 24 asylum seekers records “related”, the federal agency noted that “one of the most convincing evidence indicating that applicants for asylum were helped by a smuggling organization is the fact that 12 of them were enrolled in two separate courses ENAP and tuition fees were paid out of the same bank draft. ”
Spokesman ENAP in Montreal, Manon Malenfant says that the establishment has found that these students “have never presented” classes. However, training of ten days was planned. “At that time, ENAP had collaborated with the Border Services. At first we did not see that there was a fraud case in there, “she said. “It is to our knowledge the only case of this kind,” she says. ENAP was in contact with the Guinean authorities to prevent that cases of identity fraud were uncovered.
The Canada Border Services Agency noted in its report that these citizens quickly become asylum seekers, once entered Canada, had registered under false identities at ENAP. They were equipped with real Guinean passports, but these had been obtained by using forged documents. With ENAP, “to look like real students, they are posing as government employees. In support of their visa application, they provided false documents to establish that they were officials, “older than they actually were. False statements on the existence of children, letters from employers counterfeit, forged marriage certificates, fictitious bank statements, they had a large arsenal to support their applications to the administration.
Ignoring the work of the Canadian Embassy, which delivered visas without being alerted by the similarity of files, it notes that two officials from the Guinean government had issued 23 of these 24 issues passports.
