Calgary, Alberta, May 6, 2010 — Today the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) announced that Manh Phi Nguyen, 31, has been removed from Canada. He was removed under escort by CBSA officers on May 4, 2010.
In 2002, Manh Phi Nguyen and his brother, Hoang Phuong Nguyen, were convicted of manslaughter in the 2000 death of an Edmonton man. Manh Phi Nguyen completed his sentence in October 2009 and remained in CBSA custody pending his removal from Canada. Hoang Phuong Nguyen was removed by the CBSA in September 2008.
"I commend the CBSA for successfully removing this violent offender from Canada," said the Honourable Vic Toews, Minister of Public Safety. "Our government is committed to ensuring criminals are taken off our streets and out of our communities. This removal is a clear sign that our efforts are working."
Canada will not be a safe haven for those who pose a threat to the safety and security of Canadians. The CBSA is committed to enforcing all removal orders as soon as practicable with our priority being the removal of individuals for reasons of security, human or international rights violations, serious criminality or organized criminality.
