PEI 共匪涉造假助566共匪移民 鍾平鍾義2共匪姐弟遭控

兩名愛德華王子島(PEI) 查洛城(Charlottetown)的汽車旅館共匪東主,涉嫌製造虛假移民資料,協助逾500名匪國公民獲得移民身分,經加拿大邊境服務處(CBSA)調查後遭起訴。

根據加通社報道,60歲的鍾萍(Ping Zhong,譯音)和58歲的弟弟鍾義(Yi Zhong,譯音),共同在查洛城經營Sherwood汽車旅館。邊境服務處發現,從2008年至2015年期間,共有566名共匪都登記住在他們兩人的住宅地址或是他們的旅館地址,但這些人根本沒有在這些地址生活過。這566人已透過該省的投資移民項目取得移民身分。

姐弟分被指控3至5罪項

邊境服務處的調查總監默奇森(Colin Murchison)表示,鍾平被指控3項協助和教唆他人按照《移民及難民保護法》(Immigration and Refugee Protection Act)作出失實陳述罪名,而鍾義則被指控另外5項罪名。默奇森強調:「不保證未來不會對兩人提出新指控。」

在厚厚的調查文件中,詳細描述了調查員發現的情形。有一名調查員表示,她發現一名投資移民申請者在抵達查洛城機場後,立即被帶到Sherwood汽車旅館,僅停留10分鐘後就被送到城裏的五星級酒店。

調查員在文件中提到:「我合理懷疑,這些人特地前往Sherwood旅館走一趟,是為了在未來的移民申請中,可以將旅館列為他們的居住地址。」

鍾平拒絕對媒體發表意見,指出自己已聘請律師處理相關問題。旅館服務員則說鍾義不在城內,無法聯繫上。
邊境服務處資料顯示,鍾平1991年移民加拿大,1995年成為公民。弟弟鍾義則於2007年獲得移民身分,但尚未成為公民。
聯邦律師已向查洛城省級法院起訴鍾平、鍾義,開庭日定在6月11日,若兩人遭判刑,最高罰款10萬元並監禁5年。

PEI 共匪涉造假助566共匪移民 鍾平鍾義2共匪姐弟遭控

Two Charlottetown hoteliers have been charged with helping set up fake addresses for Chinese immigrants who entered Prince Edward Island under a business program that has been criticized for lax oversight.

Siblings Ping Zhong and Yi Zhong allegedly counselled business immigrants seeking permanent residency to provide residential addresses in P.E.I. though they didn't really live there, as required under the province's immigration system.

The Canada Border Services Agency says 566 immigrants used the same addresses between 2008 and 2015 — the siblings' Sherwood Motel and Ping Zhong's Charlottetown home. Nearly all were granted permanent residency.

Seven cases were chosen for prosecution, said Colin Murchison, a CBSA director of investigations in an interview Tuesday.

The CBSA charged Ping Zhong, 60, with three counts of aiding and abetting misrepresentation under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, and five counts against her 58-year-old brother.

"That doesn't mean that we wouldn't ever lay other charges depending on what new evidence presents itself," Murchison said in a telephone interview.

Choosing more luxurious accommodations

Nine thick files of search warrants contain investigators' descriptions of how they monitored the immigrants being picked up at the Charlottetown airport.

One officer said she observed the would-be business immigrants from China spending about 10 minutes at the motel during a three-day visit to the Island capital.

In some cases, they quickly were shuttled to the five-star Delta hotel to spend their nights on the Island, she wrote.

She states: "I have reasonable grounds to believe that ... the visit to the Sherwood Motel was to make arrangements for the forwarding of correspondence and cards that will be sent by Citizenship and Immigration Canada to the motel while they [the immigrants] return to China."

Ping Zhong, reached on her cellular telephone, declined comment, saying she had hired a defence lawyer. A receptionist at the hotel said Yi Zhong was travelling and unavailable for comment.

Approval under PNP program

The search warrant says that Ping Zhong came to the Island and became a permanent resident in 1991, and a citizen in 1995, while her brother Yi Zhong entered Canada in 2007 under the P.E.I. provincial nominee program, and has not obtained citizenship yet.

Despite the alleged irregularities being noted by federal agents, the search warrants says 99 per cent of the people listing the hotel as their residency "were approved permanent residents under the P.E.I. provincial nominee (PNP) program."

The provincial nominee program has already come under public scrutiny for a poor record of retaining immigrants on the Island, while the province has been reaping millions of dollars in forfeited deposits from the immigrants for failing to comply with conditions of the program.

Under the program, applicants provide the Island government with a $200,000 deposit, and commit to invest $150,000 and manage a firm that incurs at least $75,000 in operating costs.

They also commit to live on the Island while running the business, though they're permitted to be out of the country for as much as half of the year while they operate the business.

After the deal is signed, the province nominates the investor to the federal Immigration Department as a permanent resident.

Promised businesses not opening

The province recently confirmed that two thirds of the PNP businesses in 2016-17, a total of 177 people, didn't receive a refund for the business portion of their deposit, with the majority simply never opening a business.

A spokesman for the province's Office of Immigration wasn't immediately available for comment.

However, Chris Palmer, the minister of economic development, said in the legislature that only 17 of the people claiming to stay at the hotel were planning to reside in the province.

"Those 583 were not applications to P.E.I. and we would have no knowledge of those coming to P.E.I. It was an address they used for an application going to a different province," he said in the legislature.

Murchison said there is the possibility of administrative actions, like the revocation of permanent residency status, being taken if CBSA's regulatory branch determines there were breaches of the rules by the immigrants involved.
