The paralegal license of the wife of a high-ranking Toronto cop has been suspended following immigration scam charges. 38-year-old Mariam Qureshi, the wife of Acting inspector Paul Qureshi, was found guilty of immigration scam charges laid against her by a Law Society of Ontario tribunal. The tribunal ruled that the paralegal expert had hand in a sophisticated immigration fraud scheme aimed at immigrants who are trying to escape to Canada from war-ridden counties. In the hearing missed by Qureshi without any legal representation, Michelle Lomazzo, chairman of the tribunal, remarked that it became inevitable for her license to be suspended because her integrity was impugned by the nature of the charges. According to reports, 62-year-old Sakia Mojadiddi is the ring leader of the immigration fraud scheme. Other members are Mariam Qureshi, her mother and her two siblings- 33-year-old Morassa Rizvir and 28-year-old Dunya Mojadiddi, all of whom are charged with offenses relating to fraud. Kim Schofield, Qureshi’s lawyer, said the paralegal maintains she has nothing to do with the fraud hence will fight the allegations and reapply for her license once declared clean.
