REASONS FOR JUDGMENT
Application

1. This is an application for review of a decision of the Refugee Review Tribunal affirming a decision to refuse a protection visa to the applicant. The applicant, a citizen of India, claims a well-founded fear of persecution for a convention reason.

2. The application was listed for final hearing tomorrow, 1st December 2004. The case has been settled today, and I have signed a Minute of Consent Orders that has already been signed by the applicant and the solicitor for the respondent. Even though the applicant is not represented by a lawyer, I propose to accept the settlement and make orders by consent, as the outcome is very favourable to the applicant.

3. I make the orders set out in the Minute of Consent Orders forwarded to the court today and I vacate the hearing date of 1st December 2004.

I direct that the proceeding should be removed from the list of cases awaiting finalisation.

I certify that the preceding three (3) paragraphs are a true copy of the reasons for judgment of Scarlett FM
