High Court rules for Afghan refugee

The High Court has ruled that a government official was wrong in rejecting Sayed Abdul Rahman Shahi's application for his mother to be granted a visa to enter and remain in Australia.
Mr Shahi came to Australia in May 2009 and was granted a protection visa.

Seven months later he applied for a global special humanitarian visa for his mother and other relatives.
The visa is limited to a proposer in Australia, aged under 18, for a reunion of immediate family members.
The High Court was told that Mr Shahi did not know his exact date of birth and it had been agreed that he turned 18 some time after the December 2009 reunion application.Under immigration regulations, that meant the mother ceased to be regarded as a member of his immediate family.For that reason the visa was refused.But a majority of the High Court judges today ruled that the decision was a jurisdictional error.news.com.au
