Statement on Helmut Oberlander Case

Feb 8, 2021

B’nai Brith Canada CEO Michael Mostyn provided the following statement to members of the media this morning on the deportation case of ex-Nazi Helmut Oberlander:

“Today’s news of the stay of proceedings against ex-Nazi Helmut Oberlander until March 19, 2021, after more than a quarter of a century of legal wrangling, is a tragedy and disgrace to Canada’s reputation.  An individual complicit in the murder of thousands has been permitted to misuse Canada and its legal system as his safe haven rather than to face justice.

“We seek to offer a voice for those who can no longer speak for themselves: this matter must at the very least proceed immediately on March 20, 2021.”
