Osprey Media. - Brantford Expositor

Another affront to human dignity and the concept of natural justice

Osprey Media. - Brantford Expositor: "Man can't afford to fight extradition order

Carrying no more than they could shove in a few suitcases and cram in backpacks, Mohammed Naim, his wife Ilona and their four children fled from a frightening, corrupt world in Budapest.

They came to Canada in 1997, settling in the Paris area, far from the extortion, threats and killings that marked their lives in Hungary.

The most important thing, the Naims reminded each other, was that they were safe and together.

Now that’s no longer true.

Mohammed Naim, 49, turned himself in to Brantford police Wednesday evening to face extradition to Hungary.

He’s panicked at the idea of leaving his family, but the Naims simply can’t afford to continue to pay their Toronto immigration lawyer any more money to fight the order.

Hungary has 40 days to send for Naim. Meanwhile, he languishes in the Brantford jail where, he told his family, he is mocked and spit upon by other prisoners.

How did a once-wealthy businessman come to such an ignoble position?

Naim’s wife and eldest daughter sat down with The Expositor on Saturday to explain their tale. "

Man can't afford to fight extradition order

This is another tragedy and a mockery of the concept of natural Justice. The story illustrates that true justice is not a free right in Canada. If you have money you can at least buy protection . If not you go to jail - truly a discusting and a scary situation Innocent until proven quilty is a myth in Canada. What is true is that invisible and unaccountable beaucrats can send out unmarked police cars at their will. Fairness to the victim and their family be damned. When will justice again prevail and not be for sale in Canada!
