Cameroonian threatened with expulsion from Canada says her deportation back to Cameroon will mean a condemnation to die

A Cameroonian citizen currently receiving treatment  in Quebec-Canada  after a liver transplantation  in 2012 has launched a heartfelt appeal to the Canadian government , a few weeks before her scheduled deportation back to Cameroon for fear of dying once she returns home.

Madame Kadje Rose, 64, from Bandjoun,in the Western region of  Cameroon, went to  Quebec in 2011 to pay a  visit her children on a Canadian visitors visa she obtained from the Canadian Embassy in Cameroon.However, during her stay in Quebec, she encountered health problems. In 2012, she underwent a liver transplantation at St. Luc Hospital in Montreal.

 Since the operation, she has been undergoing treatment and check-ups and she has been placed under medication for the rest of her life. However, proper treatments and medicines are rare in Cameroon, according to statements from her. It will therefore be a death sentence  if Canadian Immigration authorities  decide to send her back to Cameroon.

Meanwhile, she and her family have engaged the services a Canadian lawyer Stéphane Handfield, who has filed in a second application for permanent residence on humanitarian grounds. Mrs. Kadje had previusly applied to stay in Canada,but her request was rejected. The lawyer has made a request to reopen the file.

"I have considered the additional information that were submitted after the refusal of the application, given their importance to the decision that was made, and I decided to reopen the case," wrote G. Lanthier, Senior immigration officer. He added that all factors have been considered.
