Man deported again

Man deported again

A Barbadian man convicted of murderer who managed to slip back into Canada a couple of years after he was deported is to be sent back to Barbados for a second time.

James Craigwell, now 45 years, will be deported after a case which is currently before the Montreal courthouse where he is charged in connection with a series of armed robberies.

The Montreal Gazette says Craigwell received a life sentence after he was convicted of second-degree murder in the December 4th 1993, death of a 21-year-old man.

After he was granted full parole on his life sentence, in 2012, he was transferred to the custody of Canada Border Services Agency and was deported after being issued an order requiring that he inform Canadian authorities if he ever returned.

Craigwell's family moved to Canada when he was a child, but he never became a Canadian citizen.

Police in Canada reportedly have evidence to indicate Craigwell managed to return to Canada in September 2014 by using a false passport.
