Migration and Refugee
This applicant claims she fears reprisals for falling in love is against their family’s wishes. Will the AAT be satisfied that this applicant is at risk of serious harm if returned to India?
The AAT looks closely into an applicant’s claim that his life is in danger if he is returned back to his home country due to religious persecution.
Will the AAT be satisfied the applicant was a genuine refugee and owed protection by Australia or is there a real risk of significant harm if he was returned to China.
Social Services (second review)
The applicant in this case was seeking the Disability Support Pension. The AAT had to establish whether the applicant’s impairments were diagnosed, treated and/or stabilised, and then determine whether they were permanent.
This review was about the applicant’s entitlement to the Disability Support Pension for his spine. The issue in this matter was whether the applicant attracted the required 20 impairment points to qualify for the payment.
