Seligman: OCA decision in Chaudhary ‘very significant’

The Ontario Court of Appeal’s recent ruling that will allow immigration detainees to apply to the Superior Court of Justice for habeas corpus to challenge their incarceration is “very significant,” Toronto immigration lawyer Robin Seligman tells Law Times.

The appeal court’s decision in Chaudhary v. Canada (Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness) provides a new remedy to fight detention and is being lauded by immigration lawyers, the legal publication reports.

Seligman tells Law Times the decision is “very significant” and that the Superior Court will be an excellent option for those facing long-term detention.
