一个逗号引发的“血案”

因为一个逗号,引发控辩双方一致打到了高级法院。签证申请人认为这个逗号是和这句话的后半部分相关的,移民局,AAT和低级法院的法官认为这个逗号是后逗号前面半部分相关。让我们来见识一下这个神奇的逗号。

1.15AA Carer

(1) An applicant for a visa is a carer of a person who is an Australian citizen usually resident in Australia, an Australian permanent resident or an eligible New Zealand citizen (the resident) if:

(a)       the applicant is a relative of the resident; and

(b) according to a certificate that meets the requirements of subregulation (2):

(i) a person (being the resident or a member of the family unit of the resident) has a medical condition; and

(ii) the medical condition is causing physical, intellectual or sensory impairment of the ability of that person to attend to the practical aspects of daily life; and

(iii) the impairment has, under the Impairment Tables (within the meaning of subsection 23(1) of the Social Security Act 1991), the rating that is specified in the certificate; and

(iv) because of the medical condition, the person has, and will continue for at least 2 years to have, a need for direct assistance in attending to the practical aspects of daily life; and

这个在will continue for at least 2 years to have 后面的逗号,到底是说申请人有2年的疾病呢 还是说申请人需要被照顾2年?

目前在AAT和 FCC都是认为说申请人需要有2年的疾病。 但是FCA 认为申请人被照顾2年。申请人死磕移民局终于在FCA取得了胜利。Nguyen v Minister for Immigration, Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs [2019] FCA 934
