Dear Minister Jason Kenney:
I had the opportunity to read the judgement by The Honourable Mr. Justice John O’Keefe of the Federal Court a few days ago between
Nadarajah Kuruparan, Bhamini Kuruparan, Maiyuran Kuruparan, Kirushanty Kuruparan (applicants) and yourself THE MINISTER OF CITIZENSHIP AND IMMIGRATION (respondent).
These four applicants, all Tamils from Sri Lanka, whose father Nadarajah Kuruparan was a Commodore in the Sri Lankan Navy and the third highest ranking Naval Officer to the Rear Admiral to the entire Sri Lankan Navy had come to Canada via the US on August 4, 2009, when they claimed Convention Refugee status. That was almost three months after the 27-year long bloody Tamil Tiger terrorist war ended on 19 May 2009.
