Sri Lankan Tamil murderer to be deported from Canada

Thanabalasingham was charged in August 2012 with the second-degree murder of his wife, 21-year-old Anuja Baskaran.

Sri Lankan Tamil murderer to be deported from Canada

The Immigration and Refugee Board has issued a deportation order against a man whose murder charge was dropped last week because a judge ruled it took too long to bring him to trial. But it could be years before Sivaloganathan Thanabalasingham is returned to his native Sri Lanka because of a lengthy appeal process.

During a hearing at the IRB on Monday, board member Dianne Tordorf issued the removal order against Thanabalasingham, 31, because he had been convicted of assaulting his wife on three occasions between December 2011 and May 2012.

Tordorf also ruled that Thanabalasingham would remain detained at least until a second detention review on Thursday.

Thanabalasingham was charged in August 2012 with the second-degree murder of his wife, 21-year-old Anuja Baskaran. Thanabalasingham also claimed that his wife hit him and made up stories of abuse.

He spoke briefly during his detention hearing and didn’t deny killing his wife. He told Tordorf that he is good with people and hasn’t been violent during his almost five years in prison (awaiting his trial). He said he was only violent one time and said it was a big mistake. He said his life became difficult after his marriage.

  • Baskaran was fatally stabbed in the throat inside the couple’s home in August 2012.
  • Thanabalasingham came to Canada in 2004 and applied for refugee status after arriving in Vancouver.
  • He is a permanent resident, but not a Canadian citizen, which means he can be deported for criminal behaviour. If he is eventually deported, he would not be able to return to Canada unless he obtains the approval of the immigration minister.
