Supreme Court Denies Nazi Appeal

The Supreme Court has elected to not hear an appeal from Helmut Oberlander about the retention of his Canadian citizenship. Oberlander, a 95 year old man living in Waterloo, is also an ex-Nazi interpreter. An investigation back in 1995 regarding his involvement in war crimes set in motion the proceedings to strip him of his Canadian citizenship, which he has challenged all the way up the court system until now. Oberlander, who claims to have been forcibly conscripted into the Nazis when he was 17, is said to have “grossly misrepresented his wartime activities” to Canadian immigration officials. The Supreme Court did not provide reasons for refusing to hear the case, but this means that the government is now clear to continue the process of deporting Oberlander.
