Cases

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

1 The appellant, a citizen of Bangladesh, whose application for a protection visa was refused by the Refugee Review Tribunal, appeals against a decision of a judge of this Court dismissing his application to this Court under s 39B(1) the Judiciary Act 1903 (Cth).

2 The decision of the Tribunal was a privative clause decision for the purposes of s 474(1) of the Migration Act 1958 (Cth). The judgment of the primary judge was given prior to the decision of the Full Court of this Court in NAAV v Minister for Immigration and Multicultural and Indigenous Affairs [2002] FCAFC 228. Given the divergent views that were at that time expressed by single judges as to the effect of s 474(1), His Honour first considered the substance of the s 39B application. His conclusion in that matter made it unnecessary to decide whether s 474(1) would, in the circumstances, have precluded any grant of relief under s 39B of the Judiciary Act 1903 for an alleged denial of procedural fairness.

Procedural Fairness

Alkhousi v Minister for Immigration & Multicultural & Indigenous Affairs [2

The MRT decided that the appellant was not entitled to a Partner (Migrant) (Class BC) visa ("the visa"). The application before his Honour was filed on 14 January 2002. It was dealt with in accordance with the provisions of the Migration Act 1958 (Cth) ("the Act"), which included the amendments effected by the Migration Legislation Amendment (Judicial Review) Act 2001 (Cth), which took effect on 2 October 2001.
