A blind 89-year-old resident of Hope, British Columbia, has been accused of war crimes by Canada’s Justice Department.

A deportation hearing will be held for Antanas Kenstavicius, who was named in documents filed with the Immigration and Refugee Board, spokesman Paul Hardy said this week.

Canada claims that Kenstavicius gained permanent-resident status here through misrepresentation.

The specifics of the allegation against the Lithuanian-born Kenstavicius will not be made public until the board holds an inquiry, Hardy said.
