The applicant sought leave to challenge the Refugee Appeals Tribunal on the ground that the Tribunal was in breach of fair procedures in failing to consider its own previous decision to recommend refugee status in the applicant’s daughter’s case. The applicant’s own appeal was dismissed. The Court refused leave finding that the Tribunal had correctly stated the law when it held that it could not be influenced by the decision in the applicant’s daughter’s case.
