CBSA lawyer argues international student responsible for fraudulent admission letter


International student Amritraj Singh Batth is currently the subject of an ongoing hearing pertaining to the fraudulent admission letter he received in 2018. Batth is one of many international students who reportedly applied for student visas from the same India-based agent; this agent subsequently issued a series of fake letters. At the ongoing tribunal, Batth maintained that he was unaware the initial letter was inauthentic. Canada Border Services Agency lawyer Nathan Reid argued that regardless of the applicant’s knowledge and intentions, the student is ultimately “responsible for the content of an application for which they sign.”
