Tamil Family wins Federal Court case

The Australian Federal Court has ruled that the application of Priya-Nadesalingam's second daughter Tarunika, who faces deportation from Australia, was not considered prejudicial. 
In particular, Judge Mark Moshinsky said Tarunika's application had no procedural fairness.
The family's future rests on Tharunicaa's case, on whether she has a right to apply for a protection visa.

Key points:

  • Priya, Nades, and daughters Kopika and Tharunicaa remain in detention on Christmas Island after an injunction on an attempt to deport them
  • The family had been living in central Queensland’s Biloela but in 2018 immigration officials transferred them to detention
  • The Federal Court says both parties have seven days to agree on an order declaring the two-year-old’s application was not afforded procedural fairness
