Entrevue avec Andréanne de la Coalition contre la Répression et les Abus Policiers – CRAP suivie de la chanson « Villeneuve » dédiée à son frère, Freddy Villanueva, assasiné par le service de police de Montréal le 9 août 2008.

En janvier dernier, Dany Villanueva a appris que l’Agence des Services Frontaliers du Canada (ASFC) a lancé une procédure de renvoi pour afin de lui retirer son statut de résident permanent et ainsi l’expulser du Canada.

Le 21 avril dernier, Dany a eu une première audience devant la Commission de l’immigration et du statut de réfugié (CISR), au cours de laquelle le Commissaire Louis Dubé a prononcé une mesure de renvoi contre lui. L’audience, à laquelle avait assisté plus de 70 personnes préoccupées par les menaces d’expulsion contre Dany, a duré moins de cinq minutes. Son audience était retransmise par vidéo, de sorte que les ami-es et personnes venues appuyer Dany n’ont pu entrer dans la salle avec lui, une procédure inhabituelle pour les audiences à la CISR. Dany va contester son ordre de renvoi devant la Section d’appel de l’immigration. Le 13 octobre prochain, il aura une audience dans le but de fixer une date pour entendre son appel.
Mise en contexte
Dany est le grand frère de Fredy Villanueva qui a été tué par un policier de la ville de Montréal en août 2008. Une enquête du coroner est présentement en cours dans le but d’établir les causes et circonstances du décès de Fredy. Dany est un témoin clé de l’enquête puisqu’il a assisté à l’intervention policière qui a coûté la vie à son jeune frère.
Il est clair que le moment choisi pour entamer les procédures de renvoi contre Dany est hautement suspect. Ce moment coïncidait en effet avec le début prévu du témoignage de Dany à l’enquête du coroner. (…) Rappelons que Dany a déjà payé sa dette à la société, c’est pourquoi nous croyons qu’il ne devrait pas être déporté au Honduras, un pays qu’il a à peine connu puisqu’il vit au Canada avec sa famille depuis l’âge de 12 ans et est résident permanent du Canada depuis 1998.
Les procédures à l’endroit de Dany exposent l’injustice de la « double peine » contre les immigrant-es reconnu-es coupables de crimes. Que ce soit clair : Dany a déjà été puni par le système judiciaire pour sa condamnation criminelle. Or, l’État s’apprête à le punir doublement en initiant des procédures d’expulsion contre lui. La « double peine » cible particulièrement les immigrant-es pauvres et les jeunes de couleur, victimes du profilage social et racial de la part de la police. Le mot réhabilitation, si cher à notre système pénal, n’est semble-t-il applicable que pour les Canadiens de souche.

For three days in April 2006, the People’s Commission on Immigration Security Measures held Public Hearings at a community centre in Montreal’s Little Burgundy neighbourhood. The first popular commission of inquiry on immigration issues to take place in Quebec, its purpose was to investigate the implications of security-related measures currently imposed on international migrants in the name of national security. The Commission, though based in Montreal, drew on support from Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa, Kingston, Sherbrooke, Halifax and elsewhere in Canada. The Commission investigated and reported on the actions of Canadian government bodies in relation to Immigration and Refugee Protection Act security measures (IRPA), examining the equality of treatment of non-citizens, security certificates and similar procedures, detention and deportation (including deportation to torture). Based on its findings, the Commission has made recommendations for appropriate legal or popular action against those responsible for abuses and for changes to the current legal and procedural framework. The public launch of the People’s Commision Final Report took place on February 1, 2007 at the Center Communautaire Musulman de Montreal.

The People’s Commission is a project of the Coalition for Justice for Adil Charkaoui (www.adilinfo.org), QPIRG-Concordia(www.qpirgconcordia.org), and Solidarity Across Borders (www.solidarityacrossborders.org).
