The Crown has opened its case against two former executives at SISO.
Lawyers allege the executive director and financial controller of the now defunct agency defrauded the Canadian government of at least 1-million dollars through phony expenses, payroll sheets and invoices.
Morteza Jafarpour and Ahmed Robert Salama each face charges of fraud, uttering forged documents, conspiracy to commit an indictable offence and mischief to data.
The charges relate to the sudden financial collapse of the immigration services organization nearly three years ago.
The trial is expected to last three weeks.
