An appeals tribunal has overturned rejection decisions in a third of all asylum cases it heard in the last year, Newshub reports. The immigration and protection tribunal has also upheld appeals by more than one in three people who were due to be deported. In residence appeals, 286 people were successful and another 64 were found to have special circumstances and were thus referred to the Associate Minister of Immigration. The tribunal’s annual report for the last financial year showed the number of appeals on hand were the lowest in its history.
