自華為高管孟晚舟被捕事件以來,中加關係持續緊張。近日,加拿大情報部門將華裔病毒學家邱香果夫婦帶走。

加拿大媒體當地時間14日報導,加情報部門本月5日將知名華裔病毒學家邱香果夫婦以及他們的學生帶離加拿大國家微生物實驗室,原因據稱是「違反相關條款」(policy breach) 。8日,情報部門向該實驗室的人員宣布,邱香果夫婦將離開一段時間,她們的同事被警告不得與她們聯繫。

2018年12月,加拿大應美國要求於拘捕華為副董事長孟晚舟後,中加關係隨即惡化。及後中國扣留加拿大前外交官康明凱(Michael Kovrig),以及商人邁克爾(Michael Spavor),指控二人間諜罪。但外界認為二人被扣是北京採取的政治報復行為。

據報導,邱香果博士和她的丈夫,以及他們的一些學生都在這個實驗室工作和學習。加拿大國際微生物實驗室是北美地區屈指可數的4級實驗室。這個級別的實驗室保存有包括「伊波拉」病毒在內的最致命的人類和動物病毒,是級別最高的實驗室。

邱香果博士是國際知名的病毒學家,她和她的同事蓋瑞·庫賓格(Gary Kobinger)因發明伊波拉病毒治療藥物ZMapp贏得國際聲譽,並在2018年獲得加拿大總督創新獎(GGIA)。

另加拿大政府發言人13日證實,一名加拿大公民於中國煙台市被扣留。加拿大全球事務部指出,已向被扣加國公民提供領事協助,但基於隱私法,沒有透露被扣押公民的身分,亦未提到被扣押的原因。

中國外交部發言人耿爽在例行記者會上表示,江蘇省公安機關近日查獲一起外籍人員涉毒案,目前案件正在偵辦中。公安機關已經及時向相關國家的使領館進行了領事通報,依法保障當事人的正當權益。

加国特大移民欺诈案 1200名中国人卷入


边境局调查人员从华人夫妇在萨省家门外的垃圾筒里找到证据。(视频截图)

加拿大边境服务局(CBSA)的官员利用垃圾筒里找出来的几份文件为线索,揭开一宗特大移民欺诈案,涉案人包括萨省的数十个商人,以及上千名申请移民的中国人。

根据CBC新闻网获取的搜查令申请文件,这宗移民欺诈案的主谋是住在萨斯喀彻温省白城市(White City)的一对华人夫妇名为王琦(Qi Wang,音)和崔玉娟(Yujuan Cui,音)。案情涉及提供虚假工作。

案件涉及一大批商家,包括位于Fort Qu’Appelle的一间汽车旅馆,位于Estevan镇的一间广告公司,位于里贾纳(Regina)的一间保险公司。就连贾纳市的前市长Doug Archer也被卷入案中,他是这间保险公司的业主之一。

Doug Archer接受CBC采访时说,他的公司使用王琦的服务,招聘了2到3个“非常优秀的职员”,但是不清楚细节。

报导说,调查人员最早于2012年4月展开调查,有一天,王琦拿着一叠移民申请走进里贾纳移民办公室,引起移民官的注意。移民官发现王琦提交的申请文件可疑,于是通知了边境局。

文件显示,所有的商家和雇主都是真实的,但是联络电邮地址却是其他人。而王琦本人之前,因涉嫌提供不存在的工作职位而受到萨省移民提名项目的2年禁令。

于是,边境局调查人员决定深入调查。同年5月,他们在王琦家门前,清空垃圾筒翻找。结果,从垃圾筒里找出来的证据,帮助边境局揭开了这宗规模庞大的欺诈案。

加拿大边境服务局于2014年3月提交了获取搜查令的信息,法庭批准边境局取得王琦和崔玉娟夫妇的银行记录。

文件中有详细的证据,包括一段意外录到的对话,一张练习伪造签名的纸,以及一封电邮,电邮中一间小型电脑公司的东主意外得知他的公司为21名中国人提供了工作。

2015年12月,代表边境局的检控官对王琦和崔玉娟夫妇提出一系列指控。

两人被控,向想要移民加拿大的中国人收取费用,为他们提供虚假的工作邀请函;同时两人又向萨省合法商家付费,换取商家的虚假工作邀请。部分案例中,王琦夫妇被控直接伪造工作文件,根本没有经得商家的同意。

检控官称,边境局调查人员在王琦的家中找到的文件中,发现1200多个中国人的名字,其中有641人已经进入加拿大联邦或省移民程序,87人已经成为永久居民。王琦夫妇“向中国申请人非法收取约$60万元”,并向萨省17家商业主支付了约$9.5万元。

报导称,两人目前住在卑诗省Roberts Creek镇,他们是在3年半之前受到指控,正在等候庭审。检方的指控还没有得到法庭的批准,审前听证会定于今年9月进行。

边境局称,这是该局自2006年以来在萨省调查的最大一宗移民刑事罪案。

边境局的文件还揭露,王琦与崔玉娟两人在2004年至2011年间,开了至少8间公司,包括两间餐馆,2间贸易公司,1间移民公司、1间商店和1间建筑公司,提供了20多个虚假职位。

边境局表示,有证据显示部分公司都是为了移民造假而设立的。

近年来,频频有中国人因涉移民欺诈案而遭抓捕。

去年10月18日,美国证券交易委员会,向北加州地区法院提起诉讼,指控一名华裔移民律师陈丹红(音译,Jean Danhong Chen)和她的丈夫叶建云(音译,Tony Jianyun Ye)以及陈丹红律师事务所涉嫌欺诈,向EB-5移民计划的外国投资者收取超过1,200万美元的非法佣金。

Sask. business people, including former Regina mayor, caught up in massive immigration fraud case

Qi Wang and Yujuan Cui accused of paying business people in exchange for job offers for Chinese nationals

By Geoff Leo

According to an information to obtain a search warrant (ITO) filed by the Canada Border Services Agency, Doug and Gloria Archer's business, Knight Archer Insurance, was allegedly paid in exchange for providing job offers to Chinese nationals. (Fine Lifestyles magazine)

Canada Border Services Agency officials used documents found in a garbage bin to begin unravelling what they allege was a sprawling immigration fraud scheme led by a couple from White City, Sask., involving fraudulent job offers, hundreds of Chinese nationals and dozens of Saskatchewan business people.

CBC News has obtained a search warrant application that alleges a wide range of businesses — including a motel in Fort Qu'Appelle, an advertising agency in Estevan and an insurance company in Regina co-owned by the city's former mayor, Doug Archer — were caught up in the scheme.

As part of its investigation, CBSA filed an information to obtain a search warrant (ITO) in March 2014. The agency sought and received authority from the court to access the banking records of Qi Wang and Yujuan Cui, who are accused in the case.

The ITO details peculiar bits of evidence for CBSA's allegations, including an accidentally recorded conversation, a sheet of paper where someone was practising forging a signature, and an email in which the owner of a small computer company expresses surprise when he learns his company was offering jobs to 21 Chinese nationals. 

In December 2015, the Crown filed a series of charges against Wang and Cui, accusing the married couple of receiving payments from Chinese nationals seeking permanent residency in Canada in exchange for securing them job-offer letters, often for positions that didn't actually exist. 

The Crown also alleges Wang and Cui offered money to legitimate business owners in Saskatchewan in exchange for fraudulent job offers. In some cases, authorities say, the couple simply forged job-offer documents without the business owner's explicit consent. 

In a fact summary filed in court, the Crown says CBSA investigators found more than 1,200 names of Chinese nationals in records seized from Wang and Cui's home, with 641 of those names showing up in the federal or provincial immigration system.

Seventy-eight of those people had become permanent residents in Canada.

The Crown alleges the couple "illegally received approximately $600,000 from Chinese nationals" in exchange for job offers and "paid out approximately $95,000 to 17 different Saskatchewan business owners."

CBSA says it's the largest immigration case the agency has investigated in Saskatchewan since it took over responsibility for prosecuting criminal immigration offences from the RCMP in 2006.

In an email, Wang and Cui's lawyer, Aaron Fox, said his clients are not guilty and will prove it at trial. 

"They expect that all of the story will come out at that time and that they will be exonerated accordingly." 

Though charges were laid 3 ½ years ago, Wang and Cui, who now have an address in Roberts Creek, B.C., are still awaiting trial. A pretrial hearing is set for September.

None of the allegations have been proven in court.

From suspicion to dumpster diving

According to the ITO, the investigation began in April 2012, when a provincial immigration official saw Wang walk into the department's Regina office carrying what the official believed was a stack of immigration applications. 

It was particularly curious because Wang, who is also known as Chee, was in the midst of two-year suspension from participating in the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP). According to the Crown, he was suspended from September 2008 to September 2010, "as he had been offering jobs from Saskatchewan companies that were not in existence and offering positions from a company for which authorization had not been received." 

A SINP official did some digging around and discovered 19 active immigration applications that were suspicious, at least six of which appeared to be directly connected to Wang.

She sent the list to CBSA, where an investigator noticed something odd.

"All the businesses and employers/representatives exist, but the contact email addresses provided with the applications appear to belong to someone else," the ITO says.

While the legitimate businesses appeared to have real websites and corporate email accounts, the immigration applications in their name were being submitted from Hotmail accounts.

The investigator decided this was worth a deeper dive. In May 2012, they emptied the garbage bin in front of Wang and Cui's home in White City, east of Regina, and started sifting through it.

What they found helped them crack open what they say was a massive immigration fraud scheme.

Former mayor's business involved

The ITO alleges that for more than a decade, Wang and Cui were actively recruiting Saskatchewan businesses willing to offer jobs to Chinese nationals.

As part of its evidence, CBSA pointed to Regina-based Knight Archer Insurance, which is owned by former Regina mayor Doug Archer and his wife, Gloria.

The ITO contains a database of 1,200 names of Chinese nationals. Beside many of those names is the name of a Saskatchewan business and a contact person.

Knight Archer Insurance and Gloria Archer's name appear by the names of 16 Chinese nationals.


CBSA's ITO contains a list of names of Chinese nationals who officers suspect were offered jobs, 16 of which appear to have been offered by Knight Archer Insurance. (CBSA's ITO)

Doug Archer acknowledged in an interview with CBC that his company hired two to three "very good staff" using Wang's services. But he said he's not too familiar with the details.

"I wasn't really very involved in that at all. That was Gloria that had some involvement," he said.

During CBSA's search of Wang and Cui's home, they discovered a chequebook. It indicated that in 2012, Gloria Archer was the recipient of two payments: one for $3,000 and another for $7,000.


CBSA says a bank statement and emails seized from Wang and Cui's home show Gloria Archer was paid for providing a job offer. (CBSA's ITO)

CBSA says this is evidence that Wang and Cui were "paying Saskatchewan business owners for providing fraudulent job offers to foreign nationals."


The agency also says it has email correspondence between Qi Wang and Gloria Archer in which Archer wrote, "We were not clear on what happens with these referrals, do James and I get a fee for each referral?" To which Wang responded, "Yes." 

Doug Archer said he doesn't know anything about those alleged payments. He also said his lawyer had advised him not to discuss it, as the matter is before the courts.

Gloria Archer hasn't replied to CBC's request for an interview. 

She is one of about 20 business people who've been called as witnesses in the case.

'I helped him to submit all information'

Dave Moscaliuk, the owner of Regina-based Impact Printers, has also been called to testify.

He confirmed with CBC that in 2012, Wang asked if he would be willing to offer jobs to Chinese nationals looking to immigrate to Canada.

He said it didn't seem to matter to Wang whether there was an actual job available. He just wanted the job-offer letter.

"He wanted us to sign and agree that we'll find a job, and if we don't have one, he'll find one for them," Moscaliuk recalled. "So he was just trying to bring them into the country."

Dave Moscaliuk says in 2012 he considered hiring Chinese nationals for his printing business using Qi Wang's services. (LinkedIn)

The ITO indicates Impact made job offers to four Chinese nationals.

The documents say that on May 29, 2012, an official with SINP called Moscaliuk to ask some questions about one of those offers.

Moscaliuk told SINP that the email Wang had used for the immigration application wasn't an official Impact Printers address, and that it was set up by Wang.

According to the ITO, Wang quickly did some damage control by emailing an explanation to SINP.

He said Moscaliuk is a friend and let him find some skilled workers for his business.

"I helped him to submit all information for him," Wang's email says.

He apologized for any inconvenience, explaining that he was just helping Moscaliuk.

Recorded conversation accidentally becomes evidence

Then some unexpected evidence dropped into CBSA's lap after a conversation between Wang and Moscaliuk was accidentally recorded.

According to the ITO, on June 15, 2012, Moscaliuk left a phone message with SINP looking for the password to access his online SINP application.

"When Mr. Moscaliuk finished leaving his message, it seems that he tried to hang up his phone but was unsuccessful," the ITO says.

The voice mail recorded a discussion between Moscaliuk and a man CBSA believes is Wang.

According to CBSA's summary of the recording, the other man's voice is inaudible at times, but it is still possible to understand much of the discussion.

What's clear, the agency says, is that Moscaliuk "does not plan on actually employing the foreign nationals that he plans to offer jobs to."

At one point in the conversation, the other man assures Moscaliuk: "They won't ask you about it."

"Isn't that kinda being sneaky?" Moscaliuk replies, concluding himself that it is.

"So, can I be charged ... if these people are coming over here and they get into the country and they didn't have a job here and I am standing behind it?" Moscaliuk asks.

When reached by CBC News, Moscaliuk said he had no idea the conversation had been recorded.

He seemed taken aback after CBC read him a transcript.  

"This kind of felt like an accusation call," he said. "I think my mind's racing … What the hell did I do wrong?"

Moscaliuk said he never hired anyone using Wang's services. He said he ended his relationship with Wang after he discovered Wang had put his name on immigration paperwork from a competitor's business.

Workers in the midst of a boom

According to CBSA's account, Moscaliuk wasn't the only business person Wang claimed to be helping.

In an interview, Mike Fritzler told CBC that Wang first reached out to him back in 2012, when Fritzler was the owner of Regina-based Fact Computer. The company has since been sold.

Fritzler said at that time, the province was in the midst of a jobs boom and it was tough to find workers.

According to CBSA's ITO, Mike Fritzler was surprised to learn Qi Wang issued 21 job offers to Chinese nationals on Fritzler's behalf. (LinkedIn)

He said he needed a few employees and Wang promised to handle everything.

"Well, that's a businessman's dream, right? Where you're going, 'OK, you're going to find everybody. You're going to handle all the paperwork. All I need to do is interview them and be sure they're going to fit the job and hire them,'" Fritzler said. "That's perfect."

Only it wasn't perfect.

According to the ITO, Fritzler's relationship with Wang came to the attention of CBSA while investigators were digging through Wang's trash.

They came across a job offer letter that was signed by "Mike Ferizker (sic)" and referred to the company as "Fact Coputers (sic)." 


This job-offer letter that appeared to be from Regina-based Fact Computers raised the suspicions of CBSA officers because it misspells the word 'computer' and the owner's last name. (CBSA's ITO)

The investigators thought it peculiar that the head of a computer company couldn't spell "computer," not to mention "highly unusual that someone would misspell their own name." 

In an interview with CBC, Fritzler said he knew Wang was going to make some job offers on behalf of Fact Computers.

"I told him I only needed a few," said Fritzler. When CBC asked how many people he needed specifically, Fritzler said "two or three." 

However, an email exchange between Wang and Fritzler, detailed in CBSA's ITO, suggests the Regina businessman was open to offering nine jobs. But he got more than he bargained for.

"You put 21 positions on my file!!," Fritzler wrote to Wang on Aug. 20, 2012. "You told me only 9!"

Wang replied: "21 positions. Make sure 21 all approved." 

CBC asked Fritzler why he originally said he needed just two or three workers when he seemed to have been expecting nine.

"We were growing very significantly at the time. So, could we have used all nine? Possibly. Could I have used two? Definitely. Could have used five? Maybe."


CBSA's ITO quotes an email Mike Fritzler sent to Qi Wang expressing concern that officials believe he's offering 21 jobs to Chinese nationals. (CBSA's ITO)

According to the ITO, Fritzler told Wang he was put in an awkward position during a conversation with an immigration official.

"You have to tell me this stuff," he told Wang. "I sounded like an idiot when she asked me about each position and how many people."

Fritzler told Wang an immigration officer was digging into his files because Wang had forged and misspelled Fritzler's signature.

Wang apologized, telling Fritzler, "I know you are super busy. So I just signed it for you."

All of this led CBSA to conclude "there were no valid jobs for the SINP applicants that had job offers from Mike Fritzler."

Fritzler said he really did want to hire a handful of people and he interviewed a couple of Chinese nationals referred by Wang.

However, in the end, nothing came of it, he said.

"I never was able to hire anybody and everything was messed up."

Wang and Cui's own companies offered jobs, too

CBSA's ITO says there is also evidence that Wang and Cui put out more than 20 fraudulent job offers for companies they created. 

Between 2004 and 2011, the couple set up at least eight companies, including two restaurants, two trading companies, an immigration firm, a general store and a construction company.


The agency says it has evidence that at least some of these businesses were fronts for their immigration scheme. 

Not just in Regina

The alleged scam doesn't just involve businesses in Regina. CBSA found evidence that Wang and Cui also targeted several small communities in southern Saskatchewan. 

At its peak, Loretta Threinen's Estevan-based business, KO Advertising, had just three employees.

She was stunned when CBC informed her that, according to the ITO, KO Advertising had offered eight jobs to Chinese nationals, including for customer service manager and sales manager.

"Holy crap," she said. "Unbelievable."


Loretta Threinen of Estevan, Sask., was stunned to learn someone had been offering people jobs with her business without her knowledge. (CBSA's ITO)

"I did not write those [job offer] letters," Threinen said. She also pointed out that the address listed on the letter offering the sales manager's position was not KO's.

Bill Singh, who runs the Indian Head Motel Bar and Grill, says he and his wife have been the only full-time employees for years.

He said he was surprised when CBC told him CBSA found evidence his motel had issued six job-offer letters.

In Wang and Cui's trash, CSBA investigators found a completed job offer for a Chinese national dated Feb. 17, 2012, to work at Singh's motel.

Singh insists it's fake and CBSA officials appear to back him up.

The ITO notes that the document has "Indian Head Bar & Grill" taped on the top of the page and a small piece of paper taped to the bottom with the signature "Bill Singh."

CBSA also says it found a sheet containing a bunch of handwriting, including evidence that someone was "attempting to practise or replicate the signature of Bill Singh."


In Wang and Cui's dumpster, CBSA officials found a sheet of paper that they believe is evidence someone was practising business owner Bill Singh's signature. (CBSA'S ITO)

Singh says he never signs with his English first name "Bill" but only with his Indian first name.

He hasn't been called as a witness to the pending trial, but more than 40 others have, including 20 Saskatchewan business people. None of them has been charged in this matter.
