Cases

NAAK v Minister for Immigration & Multicultural Affairs [2002] FCAFC 160 (3

1 The appellant appeals from a decision of a Judge of the Court dismissing with costs his application for review of the decision of the Refugee Review Tribunal ("the Tribunal"). The Tribunal had dismissed his application for review of a decision of a delegate of the respondent, the Minister for Immigration & Multicultural Affairs, ("the Delegate" and "the Minister" respectively) by which the Tribunal affirmed the Delegate's decision not to grant the appellant a protection visa. The appellant was born in Vladivostok and is a citizen of the Russian Federation. His claim was that he had a well-founded fear of persecution in Russia because he is Jewish.

WACW v Minister for Immigration & Multicultural & Indigenous Affairs [2002]

1 The appellant is a male Iranian citizen. He arrived in Australia on 19 June 2000. At that time he was almost 33 years of age. On 1 March 2001 he lodged an application for a protection visa (class XA) under the Migration Act 1958 (Cth) ("the Act"). On 26 March 2001 a delegate of the respondent refused the application. On 18 July 2001 the Refugee Review Tribunal ("the Tribunal") affirmed the decision of the delegate. On 7 December 2001 Carr J dismissed an application by the appellant to review the decision of the Tribunal. Because of the date at which the appellant applied for judicial review, his application and the appeal must be dealt with pursuant to the provisions of s 476 of the Act as they stood prior to amendments which came into operation on 2 October 2001.

2 The criterion for a protection visa is whether, at the time of the decision, the decision-maker is satisfied that the appellant is a person to whom Australia has protection obligations under the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees as amended by the 1967 Protocol Relating to the Status of Refugees ("the Convention"): ss 5(1) and 36(2) of the Act. In accordance with Art 1A(2) of the Convention, to qualify as a refugee an applicant must show that "owing to well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion, he ... is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country...".
