VWST v Minister for Immigration & Multicultural & Indigenous Affairs [2004]

MIGRATION – Appeal – no error disclosed – whether want of logic is available as a ground of judicial review

SZADN v Minister for Immigration [2003] FMCA 216 (19 May 2003)

MIGRATION - Review of decision of RRT - where applicant does not attend - where decision given without presence of applicant.

Akpata v Minister for Immigration and Multicultural and Indigenous Affairs

1 The applicant has applied for a ‘parent 103 visa’. The applicant instituted proceedings in this Court seeking final and interlocutory injunctions to restrain and prevent the respondent (the Minister) from making any decision in relation to his application for that visa until certain proceedings in the Supreme Court of South Australia are finalised. The primary Judge dismissed the application for an interlocutory injunction. The applicant seeks leave to appeal from the decision of the primary Judge pursuant to s 24(1A) of the Federal Court of Australia Act, 1976 (Cth). For the reasons given below that application is refused.

2 On 26 July 1999 the applicant applied for a Parent (Migrant) Class AX (Subclass 103) (Parent) visa. That application was considered by the Minister personally. On 11 June, 2002, the Minister refused to grant that visa on the basis that the Minister was not satisfied that the applicant passed the character test: see s 501(1) of the Act. The effect of that decision, at least if it were valid, was to cancel the bridging visa then held by the applicant: see s 501F(3) of the Act. Consequently the applicant was treated as an ‘unlawful non citizen’ and was taken into detention on 25 May 2004 pursuant to s 189 of the Act. The applicant instituted proceedings challenging the Minister’s decision under s 501 of the Act. He was ultimately successful in those proceedings: see Akpata v Minister for Immigration & Multicultural & Indigenous Affairs [2004] FCAFC 65 (Akpata) and the decision of the Minister refusing to grant the applicant a parent visa was quashed. The basis for that decision was that the applicant had not been afforded procedural fairness in the decision making process. The applicant was consequently released from detention.

SZAAU v Minister for Immigration [2003] FMCA 86 (13 March 2003)

MIGRATION - Review of Refugee Review Tribunal decision affirming a delegate's refusal of a protection visa - discontinuance of proceedings.

PRACTICE AND PROCEDURE - Costs - whether costs payable when an applicant in migration proceedings discontinues prior to trial.

NBCI v Minister for Immigration & Multicultural & Indigenous Affairs [2004]

1 There is before the Court an appeal from a judgment of a single Judge dismissing an application for review of a decision of the Refugee Review Tribunal ("the Tribunal") affirming a decision of a delegate of the respondent Minister refusing the appellant a protection visa. The learned primary Judge’s reasons were succinct and recited:

‘When the matter came before me, counsel for the respondent appeared, as did the applicant, with the assistance of an interpreter. When asked what matters he wished to raise in relation to the proceedings, the applicant was unable to specify anything, and seemed to have elected not to speak, beyond asking me whether he could appeal from this decision.
