Abdoul Abdi scheduled to appear in Halifax federal court on Tuesday

A former Somali refugee who came to Nova Scotia as a child will be in federal court Tuesday, as his lawyers continue to fight his deportation.

Abdoul Abdi never received Canadian citizenship while growing up in foster care in Nova Scotia, and was detained by the Canada Border Services Agency after serving five years in prison for multiple offences, including aggravated assault.

newsideTuesday’s appearance in Halifax’s federal court could spell an end to the threat of deportation. Abdi’s Halifax-based lawyer Benjamin Perryman said the judicial review could see government ordered to issue a warning letter instead of deportation, or to make a third decision on deportation.

“What he’s asking for is effectively a second chance to prove himself,” Perryman said via email in March.

In March, Abdi’s sister and other supporters rallied outside Province House, calling on the provincial government to intervene on his behalf. Premier Stephen McNeil has said children in the province’s care are presented with many options, including information about citizenship.
