They let a Somali drug dealer immigrant run free and later hid doing all this from the public after police arrested him for abducting, raping, torturing and killing the young woman above. The SOB dumped her mutilated, half-naked dead body into a ditch where it lay for over a month. The story is unbelievably tragic and infuriating. Canadians and everyone: Please go HERE to sign an online petition created by Marissa Cartwright, the girl’s twin sister, over all this. [INCOG]
Two years ago, a beautiful Alberta woman named Jenna Cartwright was brutally raped, killed, and her body mutilated. The authorities hid information about the killer from the public. It has only now been made available.
The killer was a hard-core career criminal from Somalia that had already been convicted of multiple crimes in Canada. The Canada Border Services Agency deemed him a huge risk to public safety. They had asked that he be deported and held behind bars until the deportation took place. Instead the Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Board released him to continue terrorizing Alberta.
His rights, as a convicted drug trafficker ordered deported to Somalia, were deemed more important than the guaranteed safety of Canadian citizens.
And so, despite warnings that Bashir Gaashaan was a flight risk* who posed a danger to the public, Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Board let him go — a freedom that lasted exactly one year and eight months.
On June 15, 2011, RCMP in Alberta announced they had arrested Gaashaan, charging him with first-degree murder, unlawful confinement, offering an indignity to human remains, sexual assault and trafficking in cocaine.
The body of Jenna Cartwright, 21, a young mom from Red Deer, had been discovered in a ditch near Olds — and police believe the man ordered out of Canada two years earlier killed her.
“I’m so angry, even more angry than before — the whole thing is sickening,” says Marissa Cartwright, Jenna’s twin sister.
For the first time, she’s having a look at documents obtained by the Sun detailing Gaashaan’s release by the Immigration and Refugee Board.
“I am still in such shock about this,” says Cartwright, who started an online petition demanding stricter deportation rules.
“I cannot believe this has happened, I honestly feel betrayed by our government — we should be able to rely on our government and know they are keeping us safe.”
But public safety, apparently, doesn’t trump the comfort of a convicted drug dealer — even one already deemed unfit for Canada.
* “Flight risk,” as in allowing him to freely go where he pleased while his case for deportation worked it’s way through the Canadian system – probably even running loose after. We’ve had the same kind of BS going on in America, too. [INCOG]
