Court of Appeal: Armenian man who claimed to be a Jehovah’s Witness has deportation order reaffirmed

The Minister for Justice and Law Reform has successfully appealed an Order of the High Court, which quashed the Minister’s decision to affirm an Armenian national’s deportation order. Delivering the judgment of the three-judge Court of Appeal, Mr Justice Michael Peart found that the trial judge had erred on both the issue of suicidal ideation, and the risk of assault as a Jehovah’s Witness.
