OTTAWA - An Egyptian man who preyed on Toronto sex workers will be deported after the Supreme Court on Friday refused to hear his appeal.
Al-Munzir Es-Sayyid, 23, terrorized and robbed escorts from downtown agencies using guns and knives. In 2009 he was found inadmissible to Canada because of serious criminality under the Immigration Act and a deportation order was issued against him, according to Supreme Court documents.
"Based on Mr. Es-Sayyid's numerous and serious criminal acts involving firearms and threats of violence, as well as his lack of rehabilitation in spite of probation and incarceration, he [presents] a present and future danger to the Canadian public and his presence in Canada [poses] an unacceptable risk," says a court document on his case.
Es-Sayyid appealed that decision and said the judge was biased. He also said he should not be deported because his father was a political dissident in Egypt and as a result he might face persecution at home.
His motion for a stay was dismissed by the Federal Court, and Judge Michel Shore ordered the deportation take effect "as soon as it is realistically feasible to do so".
Es-Sayyid moved to Canada in 1996 as a seven-year-old.
