Litigation Support: Gunther, Krena, Toussaint
Challenge to Refusal to Waive Fees for Poor People Applying for Humanitarian and Compassionate Consideration
SRAC recently supported CCPI and several rights claimants in an historic challenge to the refusal of the Federal Government to provide for a waiver of fees for Humanitarian and Compassionate Review under the Immigration Act for those who live in poverty.
Justice Snider of the Federal Court, dismissed the applications, finding two of the applications moot, and dismissing the application of Nell Toussaint. The applicants expect to appeal.
