Visa loopholes for criminals
4BC Drive: Shadow Minister for Immigration & Population Scott Morrison is criticising a new law has allowed a criminal from New Zealand to stay in Australia because he feels he is in danger of an attack from a bikie gang in his homeland.
NZ bikie gets refugee status in Australia
A former New Zealand bikie, given refugee status in Australia after seeking asylum from fellow criminals, has become the centre of a new political row in Canberra.
A tribunal decided that the 36-year-old Kiwi, who was in a witness protection scheme before flying to Australia in 2005, faced a threat of significant harm in his home country.
News Limited reports that Australian Immigration Minister Chris Bowen appealed the ruling in the Federal Court. But the court cleared the man to stay because of the government's own protection visa rules.
Opposition immigration spokesman Scott Morrison said the Labor government's new asylum laws had allowed a convicted criminal from New Zealand to gain asylum from "fellow crims and bikies back in New Zealand who want to settle some scores.
"What's next? An 'underbelly visa'? This absurd farce is just another mess of Labor's own making," Mr Morrison said.
News Limited says the man was warned when he arrived in Australia that if he committed one offence on his temporary visa he could be removed.
However, he went on to drink and drive, commit forgery, and breaching his bail conditions. He has also been charged with weapons and drugs offences, and receiving stolen property.
Here is another fine example of Labor's idea on the Asylum seeking issue to change the law to allow another loophole for criminals of all persuasions to enter the country and is supported by the high court of australia. Look at the criminal record of this mongrel. What a national disgrace and are you going to vote for these Australia hating mongrels.mick Thursday 15 November, 2012 - 11:36 AM
