Cases

1 The Court is of the view that this appeal must be dismissed. We have considered all the arguments that have been put both in writing and orally today by Mr Gethin, who appears for the appellant pro bono. We note that the learned primary judge looked at this matter in very carefully considered reasons for judgment. For the reasons his Honour has given, we see no reason why he should have granted relief in respect of the decision of the Refugee Review Tribunal. The appeal should be dismissed and we would not dissent in any way from the reasons of the learned primary judge. The order, therefore, is that the appeal be dismissed with costs.

NOTE: CHANGES TO THE MEDIUM NEUTRAL CITATION (MNC)
The Federal Court adopted a new medium neutral citation (FCAFC) for Full Court judgments effective from 1 January 2002. Single Judge judgments will not be affected and will retain the FCA medium neutral citation.

The transitional arrangements are as follows:

* All Full Court judgments delivered prior to 1 January 2002 will retain the FCA medium neutral citation.

* All Full Court judgments delivered between 1 January 2002 to 30 April 2002 have been assigned parallel medium neutral citations in both the FCA and FCAFC series.

* All Full Court judgments delivered from 1 May 2002 will contain the FCAFC medium neutral citation only.
