Minhajul Quran International (MQI) chief Dr Tahirul Qadri has decided to file an appeal in the Canadian federal court after Canadian authorities summoned him for violating his asylum oath, reported Express News on Saturday.

Qadri has hired four lawyers who will appear in the federal court on his behalf and will maintain that Qadri received complete security in Pakistan, said sources.

Meanwhile, Qadri’s lawyer Mendel Green who had requested for Qadri’s asylum in Canada refused to contest the summon order issued by authorities.

Canadian authorities had summoned Qadri on February 5, and sought explanation from him for violating the oath he took while seeking asylum.

The authorities said that Qadri violated the oath stating that he was not allowed to enter the country he had sought asylum from.

Qadri is scheduled to fly back to Canada on January 27 along with his family.

So, the man who had to rely on the Canadian welfare system is now able to hire not one, not two, not even three but FOUR lawyers to file his appeal?
