MONTREAL - A Quebec Court judge ruled that a man who posed as an immigration consultant was guilty of 54 counts of violating the province's immigration act.

Tarek Harhira allowed Tunisian nationals to claim he was their friend living in Quebec or their parents' to facilitate the applicant's entry into Canada, according to court documents." Most of the applications were sent between 2004 and 2006."

The documents also show that Harhira was not even living in Canada when applicants claimed him as their Quebec-based sponsor.
