“The Tribunal persistently misheard the applicant’s evidence that he had cooked rissoles, not risottos”

Here is what Justice Street had to say about the argument:

31. Having listened to the transcript and taking into account the material that has been admitted into evidence, the Court is satisfied that the applicant had a genuine and meaningful hearing. This was a case where there were a multitude of inconsistencies in relation to the applicant’s evidence, a large number of which the Tribunal made reference to. The error in relation to risotto was an error in finding of fact and one which was entirely understandable, given the applicant’s pronunciation of rissoles in the phonetic manner “rizolos”.

32.Indeed that pronunciation of “rizolos” was on one view entirely consistent with the applicant not having any understanding of the menu and “rizolos” was not the item “rissoles”. The applicant could not explain how “rizolos” were made. It was the lack of understanding of the menu and how to make the items named that were the focus of questions by the Tribunal.

Practice Tip – Visa Cancellation effect on Bridging Visas

Can an onshore student visa holder, who has lodged an onshore partner visa application, have their student visa voluntarily cancelled, to allow the BVA associated with their partner visa application to come into effect so they can cease their studies?

Answer: No

If the student visa is cancelled, even voluntarily, all bridging visas including the BVA associated with the partner application will cease.  The student visa holder will become unlawful and will only be eligible to apply for a BVE with all the restrictions that can entail.

Barriers to racial equality in Australia

  • One in ten Australians (1.5 million of the nation’s adult population) believe that some races are inferior or superior to others.
  • 18 per cent of Australians surveyed said they had experienced discrimination because of skin colour, ethnic origin or religion. The most often reported location of discrimination was the neighbourhood (58 per cent), followed by shopping centres (42.8 per cent) and at work (39 per cent).
  • Of the 500 complaints lodged under the Racial Discrimination Act in 2012-2013, 192 related to incidents of racial hatred. This was a 59 per cent increase over the previous year, with a large proportion of the complaints (41 per cent) involving material on the Internet.
  • Around one in three (35 per cent) recent migrants said they faced hurdles in finding their first job. Of those who experienced difficulties:
    • 64 per cent reported a lack of Australian work experience or references,
    • 33 per cent experienced language difficulties
    • 23 per cent reported a lack of local contacts or networks
    • 15 per cent had difficulties having their skills or qualifications recognised.
