Reprieve for refugees as Govt. heeds Greens concerns
The announcement of a review mechanism for adverse ASIO assessments is the first step to closing a legal black hole that has swallowed up almost 60 refugees in previous years, the Australian Greens said.
“The Greens called for this and finally the Government has acted,” Greens spokesperson for immigration Senator Sarah Hanson-Young said.
“The review mechanism will give almost 60 refugees, including families with vulnerable children, the right to challenge their adverse security assessments.
