SA man loses refugee case

2011-10-09 10:43

Johannesburg - South African Brandon Huntley has lost his latest bid to stay in Canada, after applying for refugee status, the Sunday Times reported.

On Wednesday Canada's Federal Court of Appeal dismissed his appeal against the withdrawal last year of his refugee status.

The 33-year-old, who works as a handyman at a carnival, would now take his case to Canada's Supreme Court. According to his lawyers this would buy him another four years in Canada. He left South Africa in 2004.

In 2009 Huntley successfully argued to the Canadian Immigration and Refugee Board that as a white man, he was being targeted by black criminals in South Africa. He claimed he had been robbed at least seven times in racially-motivated attacks.

Canada's Immigration Minister Jason Kenney took the matter to the federal court for review. The court agreed the board had been wrong.

The federal court described Huntley's appeal as "totally unmeritorious". It dismissed his claims that Kenney acted because of "diplomatic pressure".

His lawyers Rocco Galati and Russell Kaplan said they were not being paid to handle the case.

When asked for comment, Huntley's father Robert, who lives in Pringle Bay near Cape Town, told the Sunday Times: "No, I was not aware that he'll be coming back. And no, I don't care. No comment."

    Genocide watch has clearly reported the true situation in RSA and Canada will be joining something very evil if they do not take heed of this situation.

      Eugene - 2011-10-11 10:49

      Of course left-wing Canada is going to turn a blind eye on this. And I doubt they wouldn't would it be a non-White applicant.

  • baasdingane - 2011-10-09 11:01

    Isn't it just easier to spend 3 years at university, graduate, then immigrate - thereby becoming an "executive refugee". thats what most smart south africans do right?

      EnglishBoer - 2011-10-09 11:13

      No, you need quite a few years of work experience relevant to your degree te gain the neccessary points to qualify for a migration visa for most 1st world countries.

      kinkynun - 2011-10-09 11:27

      Agreed.This guy should have been studying while working in Canada, since its easy to do that.He would have earned himself a degree and would easily get a job anywhere in the world. Canada will make sure he is out of the country.

      Currie_Mafia - 2011-10-10 12:03

      Please stop talking about university & degrees...this clown is a handyman in a circus...a degree in tent erection, I think not.

      Neles - 2011-10-10 14:18

      lol @Currie_Mafia - this is the first time I've actually laughed out loud at a comment, literally. My wife thinks I've gone mad laughing at the laptop .. ah... classic comment.

      Eugene - 2011-10-11 11:27

      Should only the "smart", well-off people have refugee rights?

      Pierre - 2012-02-22 10:10

      @ EnglishBoer - Is Canada a 1st world country? Just asking.

      Mfudzi - 2012-02-22 16:52

      this guy does not even have matric. he's a mere handyman meaning he could be cleaning toilets or whatever. remember these so-called whites have a superiority complex here in africa only. unfortunately, we are all made of the mugabe/malema will be lucky to get a plane home when the time comes, and it will!

      Stephanie Sutherland - 2013-07-07 09:38

      @mfudzi - Yup you have a degree in being an A-hole with the mentality of a gnat. Grow up you fool, and stop destroying South Africa because you have no clue.

  • Vela Stardust - 2011-10-09 11:14

    Canada, please keep him. We don't want him back!

      Fairy.Queen - 2011-10-10 13:17

      Canada can keep him and his friends

      Pierre - 2012-02-22 10:25

      Originally I was quite p’ed of at this guy; as he dragged everybody’s reputation through the mud with exploiting the refugee loophole. That is both SA and Canada. However I feel a bit sorry for him as it seems it is only a matter of time tills his booted out; even if it takes 4 years. Because this case got too high profile, the Canadian authorities are not going to let up. Then in Canada he might make a living doing odd jobs, but in SA there is not much future in that I think. Even for guys that worked for 10 years in London in a pub (dodging immigration) and finally coming back; 10 years older, but no career development. South Africa is hard in that way. OE is fine, just don’t get stuck in it; always build a future. Ok sorry enough preaching for now.

  • ronaldclaudesmith - 2011-10-09 11:18

    Black... White..... Who cares. We need to be concentrating on getting rid of the animals that are causing havoc in our country! Starting with MALEMA

      phillip.havenga - 2011-10-09 12:33

      Ebutu are you seriously as stupid as you make out to be? The country belongs to the Khoisan you plank not the black African tribes, secondly your president is far from a great visionary unless your vision only extends to a sh*t encrusted outhouse. You can take your wealth tax and bigoted and racist statements and stick them one by one up your a$$!

      Worldwise - 2011-10-09 12:38

      Ebutu, you and the African people that took over in 1994 have had 17 years to create your own wealth while being helped by your government but you still can't get it right. Please tell me how you are going to fit 91% of the country's population into 9% of the countries houses? 98% of those houses not being mansions. You are obviously a product of outcomes based education of which mathematics was not one of your subjects. If it was a few simple calculations would show that 91% of the population cannot fit into houses possessed by 9% of the population. We already pay a wealth tax to a government that squanders it. Do you pay any tax aty all? If you did you would know that the more you earn the more you pay. So there is a wealth tax already my little brilliant economist.

      ronaldclaudesmith - 2011-10-09 12:56

      @Ebutu.... I look forward to meeting you when your great visionary, MALEMA invites you into his Mansion. Oh wait, that's NEVER gonna happen. And in reference to inviting one or two "black' families into my Mansion - with pleasure, except I don't have a Mansion, merely a modest 2 bedroom house. So move away from your generalizations (look it up in a dictionary or try google for the definition) and try become a productive member of society. CLEARY you are NOT, because you would stop crying like a Baby (MALEMA) and continuously blame whites' for your unfortunate life. Work hard.... And the rewards will follow.

    Letting him stay would set a dangerous president that the SA Government can not afford. All whites and other persecuted South Africans can then go through that same door. He should have stayed under the radar and been content with what he achieved.

  • Jes Willy - 2011-10-09 12:29

    Every race in S.A is target for robbery and from my understanding , majority of criminals are Black because are they poor n robbery is another means for them to make living. The problem with whites is , they show the criminals that they scared f them and trust me , those stupid guys will take advantage of you. crime against whites is published in newsapapers but against blacks never feature, we are also victism. The whole S.A is rotten not for whites only.

      Digit - 2011-10-09 21:45

      absolutely right .... problem is that we do not hear the masses complaining about it and demanding that something be done about it. This is where the BASIC FUNDAMENTAL difference is .... it seems that for some, crime is a norm, whereas, for the rest ( sadly a small minority ) it is morally and socially unacceptable. Everyone is victim but only this very small minority are making their voices heard and they are being labeled WHITE RACISTS !!!!!

      device - 2011-10-10 11:32

      @Digit the "MASSES" as you put it are complaining all the time. However the "MASSES" don't have internet and are not subscribers to to certain newspapers where you and I find a lot of opinions. The reason that you think that the "MASSES" are not complaining is because you don't really know who they are, what their fears are and what is important to them hence you refer to them as the "MASSES". If you were to take a huge risk and go to any township you would be absolutely gob-smacked at the amount of complaining that most residents are doing about a serious crime problem. Bear in mind that these are people who experience crime far more regularly than you and I and even Brandon Huntley. However you are not going to find those opinions on news24 or mail and guardian or any other form of media that caters primarily for middle-classes.

      Mags_24 - 2011-10-10 15:21

      @Digit Re:.... it seems that for some, crime is a norm, whereas, for the rest ( sadly a small minority ) it is morally and socially you are implying that blacks find it social acceptable to steal and murder. typical. yes you not racist Digit. you just happen to be speaking the truth right. or wait you just making your voice heard!

      Eugene - 2011-10-11 10:44

      Blacks do have higher crime rates then Whites elsewhere as well. Sorry, poverty isn't the cause of crime.

    Refugee: A person who has been forced to leave their country in order to escape war, persecution, or natural disaster.

      Eugene - 2011-10-11 10:51

      In that case most Whites that left are actually refugees.

      Rita Barnard - 2013-07-06 08:01

      Blacks want all whites out of South-African and they say so. Thus white south-Africans are indeed refugees yet no country wants to accept it, while they take in untold millions of africans and muslims who are technically NOT refugees just temporarily displaced. How on earth can you be a refugee if you are a arab in an arab country when you are just maybe from a different religion.

  • ex-pat - 2011-10-09 18:35

    I've just been visiting Canada, which tweaked my memory of this guy, though his name had escaped me. I'll tell you why they've refused him - it's very simple. They know that in South Africa white people are targeted by black criminals (yes, yes, I know that black-on-black crime is probably worse, but I'm making a different point here), SO, if they granted him refugee status, they would be flooded with applications from a few million other South African whites, with exactly the same claims, and most of them far more deserving than his. Having said yes to him, how could they reasonably say no to others? Canada may be a huge country with only about 60 million people, but vast stretches of that country are uninhabitable, due to the cold. See? I said it was simple.

      Rita - 2011-10-10 01:37

      Nonsense.. its not because of that reason. If that was the case CanaDUH would turn down black refugees and brown refugees as well. They are part of the globalist elite dominated West who hate everyone white and will eventually exterminate us from the earth as they tried to do to the Russians under Bolshevism. So yeah it is simple.. whites dont rule over themselves thats how simple it is. They are ruled by people with other loyalties.

      2WhiteStars - 2011-10-10 14:40

      Yet Canada has the door open for Chinese immigrants - a different race to the majority and a different religion and way of life. White majority nations have a duty to White South Africans and White minorities everywhere to protect them.

      Rita Barnard - 2013-07-06 08:03

      Or that's their excuse I dont see them using any excuses when they are overrun with brown and blacks who are economic refugees and not people in danger of being exterminated. No it is much worse than what most people believe. Whites everywhere are being set up to be wiped out by various measures. Sure you might think it makes no sense since whites rule white countries or so you think. But that is because you dont understand that most "white" leaders are bought shills working for our shadow elite rulers.

  • Rita - 2011-10-10 01:30

    Canada like all formerly white countries under elitist globalist rulers want whites to be genocided since they will allow the same thing to happen to whites eventually in those countries. Look at South-Africa you Canadian retards who keep your insane system going. Soon that will be YOUR fate too. But I think many of you know it already that is why you happily racemix yourself out of existence so you just help genocide yourself as a race to please your masters.

      daaivark - 2011-10-10 11:54

      to genocide is not a verb, Rita. "to please your masters"??? Who would they be? Please tell.

      Lily White - 2013-07-06 08:14

      daaivark I am another Rita, and I agree with Rita, sure genocide is not a verb, but what does that matter? The fact is that whites are being wiped out everywhere through various measures, abortion, racemixing etc. Surely you are not daft enough to think whites are doing this to themselves? No.. the fact is that the second world war was won by the jewry of the world who now rules the world through the proxies they put in power in most white countries. And they are behind the genocide. Although to be pc most people call it the Illuminati.

  • Craig Louw - 2011-10-10 03:38

    @rita, I think you should do research into canada before you make such idiotic comments. Canada is an open society with very very very low rates of violent crime. There is no segregation and the lifestyle Is 100 times better than here. I only hope that when the sh1t hits the fan here they deny you entry because I certainly won't want you as a neighbor.

  • Craig Louw - 2011-10-10 03:51

    I have to say that Rita sounds like a neo nazi and if that is what you are then you deserve to stay in SA and fight the other neo nazis (the anc) for your right to keep your race pure. I am the product of an inter racial marriage so all I can say is It's not so bad. My skin is tan, I don't need fake tan. I speak 3 languages 4 if you count rusty Japanese and my tongue isn't forked. My conscience is clear.

      daaivark - 2011-10-10 11:56

      A rather confused and inarticulate neo-nazi at that. I am very happy in an "inter-racial" relationship. People like Rita just make me sick.

      daaivark - 2011-10-10 11:58

      We are NOT crying, Suspook. Some of us actually like it here without being nasty racists or plotting genocidaires. Just plain normal people that happen to want to live at peace with our fellow South Africans.

I also love our country and would probably never leave, but lets face the facts, EVERY ONE IN 3 WOMEN WILL GET RAPED IN SA!! Not to mention the rate at which our farmers are getting killed EVERY DAY, SO OPEN YOUR EYES BEFORE YOU JUGE AND GIVE STUPID COMMENTS. Will you honestly stay if you were affected by crime 7 times - if you are willing to stay after that then you are realy a better person than me, because I sure as hell wouldn't stay! My parents are farmers and it is terrifying to see all these farmers getting killed. If I could, I will take my parents and go. At least they will be safe there.

      No one should Judge Brandon as we know not what he has been through. My concern is for the mentality of a majority who would keep a corrupt or racist government in power.

    He may be troubled because of what has been done to him in the past. He needs to forgive and then others will forgive him too. If he feels safer and happier living in Canada, he should be given another chance. It is possible that they are turning him away for fear that there will be a number of other applications from others wronged by crime or racist policy in their home countries.
