Canada was flooded with athletes - refugeesAs have informed the immigration authorities of Canada, one more participant of the World championship on track and field athletics has asked a political asylum. Thus, the number of the sportsmen, asked a political asylum has reached already six persons.
under the message sport. ru, the representative of immigration service of Canada Rendi Gerlok has declared that has no right to inform a detail about those who has addressed in its organisation with similar requests. It is known only that from six sportsmen one - a male.
Canadians always differed that willingly accepted the sportsmen, the asking status of refugees. In 1994 the Olympic champion and world champion Daniel Igali from Nigeria has asked of the permission to remain in the country when Commonwealth Games there were spent. Last month when in Quebec took place large track and field athletics competitions, some persons also have decided to remain on a constant residence (the police refuses to inform till now names and even number of immigrants).
the Immigration service of Canada allows in that case to refugees to remain in the country until the special court will not consider their cases. As a rule, this process occupies 10 months. By approximate calculations, every year Canada, whose population makes 30 million, accepts 200 000 immigrants.
