Successful application for judicial review of Minister of Immigration

in Cases

In Zhang v Minister of Immigration [2020] NZHC 568 – https://www.courtsofnz.govt.nz/assets/cases/Zhang-v-Minister-of-Immigration.pdf,  Simon acted for the applicant who successfully applied for judicial review of the Associate Minister of Immigration’s refusal to grant her a residence visa.  The Court held that the Associate Minister had failed to have adequate regard to the mandatory relevant considerations of New Zealand’s international obligations and that the the Associate Minister’s decision was unreasonable in that it was not
supported by any evidence, is inconsistent with or contradictory of the evidence and the only reasonable conclusion contradicts the determination.
