Atkins v Minister for Home Affairs [2019] FCAFC 159 (11 September 2019) (Davies, Moshinsky and Steward JJ)


Catchwords:


MIGRATION – appeal from a decision of the Federal Circuit Court of Australia – protection visa – where visa was cancelled on the basis that the appellant provided incorrect answers in his visa application – whether the Tribunal failed to consider that, on cancellation of the visa, the appellant was at immediate and ongoing risk of being removed to Iran or taken to a regional processing country pursuant to s 198AD of the Migration Act 1958 (Cth) – whether the Tribunal failed to give reasons for concluding that the appellant was not at real risk of significant harm – whether the Tribunal’s decision was legally unreasonable insofar as it made adverse credibility assessments which were perfunctory, emphatic and unsustainable on their own terms – appeal dismissed
