Dutch Jacobus Marinus van Nierop to be deported to face criminal charges in France
MONTREAL – A Dutch dentist arrested this week in New Brunswick and wanted in France for allegedly mutilating patients through botched procedures will remain detained pending his removal from Canada.
Jacobus Marinus van Nierop had a detention review before the Immigration and Refugee Board Friday via teleconference.
The Canada Border Services Agency says it is making plans to return van Nierop to his native Holland, but that could change if French authorities demand he be returned to that country to face criminal charges.
In a strange twist, van Nierop told the hearing he thought he was being held in connection with the murder of his wife in the Netherlands in 2006.
