Is Something Wrong Here?

Canadian news reports that a violent Polish sex offender has managed to avoid deportation simply by refusing to sign travel documents. The man has a long criminal record (1981 - 1998) for rape, uttering threats, unlawful confinement, fraud and drug offenses. He refused to participate in sex-offender programs while in prison. His latest conviction was for the armed sexual assault of a teenager and deportation was recommended. Released from prison in March 2004, he has been held in immigration detention pending deportation. By refusing to sign the necessary travel documents he has successfully stymied efforts to deport him. Apparently, under Polish law, he must agree to be deported.
