TORONTO — Randy and Evi Quaid were freed Wednesday from jail in Vancouver after an Immigration and Refugee Board hearing.
Shakila Manzoor, a spokesman for the Canada Border Security Agency, confirmed that Randy Quaid and his wife, Evi, had been released after six days in detention.
The CBSA also withdrew an earlier request for an admissibility hearing for Evi Quaid as they now consider her “a prima facie Canadian citizen” on grounds her father was born in Canada.
As a result, Evi Quaid received an unconditional release from custody. Manzoor also confirmed that Randy Quaid was no longer in detention after he posted a $10,000 bond.
The CBSA referred all questions about Randy Quaid’s Canadian status to the Immigration and Refugee Board, which is now expected to hear the Hollywood actor’s application to remain in Canada.
The Quaids were arrested last week in Vancouver for skipping an arraignment hearing in California over charges that they squatted in their former home.
