Scott Morrison the Immigration Minister wins the visa case row

Immigration minster Scott Morrison

A suppression order has been sought by Immigration minster Scott Morrison regarding a case, which involves a student who had applied for skilled migrant visa by submitting fake reference documents. Judge Toni Lucev of the Perth-based federal Circuit Court last month rejected an appeal made by the student Harwinder Singh Thind. The publication of aspects of the case have also been suppressed, including letters which have been sent and received from the Immigration department, also involving tribunal decision sections made by the judge.
During the month of June in 2012 the Immigration department of Australia has refused the visa application of Harwinder singh Thind as he was applying as a pastry cooked under the skilled migrant visa category but when the immigration department investigated they found out that the work reference that Mr. Harwinder Singh Thind had provided came from a person who was only knows as 'CA' and who admitted that he made fake documents for students so that they could secure a skilled migrant visa. He did not admit that he had faked the comments for the student Harwinder Singh Thind but the student was not able to provide any solid documentary proof that he was working at the organization. And a work experience of 900 hours is compulsory to get a visa under the skilled migrant category.
A suppression order has been granted by Judge Toni Lucey from Perth so that any further investigation and enquiries are not prejudiced or evidence got from CA is not prosecuted, as CA is fully co-operating with the Australian authorities. The judge said that the government must not under any terms disclose CA's identity or reveal information about the nature of help that he is giving the administration.
Migration agent from Sydney Jonathan Granger said that trading of bogus documents is a well-known fact, but it is very hard to gather any proof until the high-profile raids, which were recently carried out, are done. It is like looking for a needle in a haystack and it’s been overdue for a very long time now.
The authorities in 2012 had brought in some new steps to prevent the fraud which is going on in the skills migrant visa category, so its easier for them now to act on former students and other people who are trying to gain the skilled migrant visa using fake documents.
