ICJ Victoria Endorses Comments Made by the LCA

ICJ Victoria is disturbed by the dangerous trend of politicians’ contemptuous attacks on the judiciary and the administration of justice in response to decisions they see as unfavourable to their particular interests. As Lawyers Weekly reports:

“The Law Council of Australia has lashed out at Immigration Minister Peter Dutton following his latest attack and questioning of the independence of the Administrative Appeals Tribunal. The peak legal body described the minister’s comments, which questioned judgments made by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT), as “unfortunate” and noted that repeating them will lead to serious repercussions.”
