In a telephone interview on 29 March 1995, a program specialist with Citizenship and Immigration Canada's Port of Entry Control in Ottawa stated that the master of a vessel is required only to submit the crew list and the IMM202 to Canadian officials. The program specialist added that the master of a vessel is only given the IMM202, and that the IMM5428 is not used in the case of desertion of a crew member.

Corroborating information could not be found among the sources consulted by the DIRB.

This response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the DIRB within time constraints. This response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim to refugee status or asylum.
