      Imam loses fight to stay
      Deportation to Tunisia set for today

      An outspoken Montreal imam lost his attempt yesterday to persuade a
      Federal Court to stop his deportation to Tunisia scheduled for today.

      Saïd Jaziri, who has been one of Quebec's most quoted Muslim leaders
      during the debate on reasonable accommodation, was ordered deported
      after his refugee status, granted in 1998, was revoked last June.

      It was revoked after authorities discovered Jaziri, a Tunisian native,
      had not disclosed a criminal conviction in France in 1994. That
      conviction was related to his role in an assault on an individual
      whose actions had led to the closing of a prayer room.

      Jaziri, spiritual leader of a Bélanger St. E. mosque, is married and
      expecting a child with his wife, Nancy Ann Adams of Laval. He was
      arrested last Monday after he was judged likely not to show up for his
      deportation.

      Jaziri, who has bragged about converting at least one Quebec woman a
      week to Islam over the past few years, drew criticism recently for
      stating in a television interview with TV5 host Luck Mervil that
      homosexuality was an illness.

      He also has complained about alleged heavy infiltration of mosques by
      federal intelligence operatives.
