A Dutch woman and her two children are facing deportation from Canada even though her ex-husband has threatened to kill her, Canadian tv reports.
Lillian Ralph says Canadian officials want to deport her family next Monday, even though a decision on her application for permanent residency is expected soon.
Ralph, who has since married again, says she gave Canadian police information about her ex-husband’s criminal activities. He fled Canada and is now believed to be living in Europe.
She fears being sent back to the Netherlands because ‘the authorities in the Netherlands will not be able to protect her since they always wait for something to happen before stepping in to help,’ CTV reported.
