TORONTO (Sputnik) – Canada has agreed to end the deportation hearings against Helmut Oberlander following the former Nazi death squad member's passing, an Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB) spokesperson told Sputnik, citing the position of Public Safety Canada.
On 22 September, Oberlander's legal counsel Ronald Poulton submitted an application to the IRB to end the proceedings, saying that the ex-SS interpreter's death renders the matter "moot". In his letter, Poulton noted that he has not yet received Oberlander's death certificate.

"Further to Mr Poulton's correspondence … the minister agrees that the admissibility hearing should be terminated upon receipt of the death certificate", Anna Pape said, citing Public Safety Canada's position.

Russian Ambassador to Canada Oleg Stepanov told Sputnik Moscow regrets that Oberlander evaded punishment.
