Tamil family from Biloela to remain in Australia until final hearing of deportation case

On Thursday, Federal Court judge Mordecai Bromberg agreed there was enough evidence to take the matter to trial.

"The applicant has established a prima facie case that the power under s198 of the Migration Act is not available to the [Government] to remove her from Australia," Judge Bromberg said.

The judge also said that the risk that Tharnicaa would "suffer" if deported outweighed any potential impact on the Government.
