    Default refugee and migrant justice

    impending administration. government legal costs backlogged due to tardiness in processing claims.

    lack of legal aid for refugees could lead to absolute chaos.

    o bollocks
    have worked with these folks for the last 15 years more or less (in their former incarnation - refugee legal centre)... they are bona fide and what they say about funding is sadly absolutely right,
    shame
    support them

    don't know anything about the specifics of this case, but having had to suppress my laughter/disgust at the amount barristers are paid when sorting out our finances here, money which is then reclaimed through legal aid, well...such fees must be a huge drain upon the pool of legal aid funding that is available...little wodner there are shortfalls/delays in other parts of the system.

    i do some work with refugees - being left in legal limbo is no joke. and the time lag between claims being processed and decisions made is already pretty poor. it seriously plays havoc with their lives/heads. met one guy this week who was escaping torture because of his political alliances and so had a passport with a diff name (ie if he was caught back home he would have been detained so you need diff names) when he arrived here and ended up in prison for several months for it.
