to give evidence in Australian asylum seeker cheap Canada Goose test case

SYDNEY (Reuters) Australia highest court gave the United Nations permission on Tuesday to canada goose store give evidence in a groundbreaking legal challenge to the country power to intercept asylum seekers boats outside its territorial waters.

The intervention of the UN canadian goose jacket High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in the case of a group of Sri Lankan asylum seekers reflected the level of international concern over Australia treatment of asylum seekers on the high seas, lawyers said.

The High Court in Canberra will decide on the legality of the treatment of the 157 Tamil asylum seekers who were held at sea for almost a month before being transferred to Australia and then again to a detention centre on the South Pacific island of Nauru.

It is the first time the 2018 canada goose outlet government secretive Sovereign Borders has been tested in court. The judge who referred to the case to an expedited full canada goose clearance hearing in the High Court, Justice Kenneth Hayne, said it appeared to canada goose coats be unique.

implications for this case could be quite buy canada goose jacket significant depending on how brave the High Court is and how far it decides to extend the Canada Goose Coats On Sale power of the law, said Joyce Chia of the Kaldor Centre canada goose deals for Canada Goose sale International Refugee Law at the University of New South Wales.

The government is Canada Goose Parka already moving to block any repeat case. canada goose clearance sale It introduced a bill into parliament last month to change the Maritime Powers Act that would reduce its obligations to follow international law and restrict the oversight of Australian courts.

is a deeply, deeply concerning law and a deeply concerning power that the government is trying to give itself, said Daniel Webb, a director at the Human Rights Law Centre, which is advising on the current case.

Australia received 16,000 asylum seeker applications last year, just under 0.5 percent of the 3.6 million lodged worldwide, UN figures show. But it Canada Goose Online is a polarising political issue. Conservative Prime Minister Tony Abbott canada goose outlet sale campaigned heavily on the issue canada goose outlet toronto factory before winning elections last year.

The boat at the centre of the case was intercepted in late June in the contiguous zone just outside Australia territorial waters. Australia held the group in international waters for 28 buy canada goose jacket cheap days while it negotiated with India about returning the group.

The government did not publicly acknowledge the group existence until after legal action was launched to prevent them from being returned to India or sent to Sri Lanka.

Australian Immigration Minister Scott Morrison has said he is confident the group were economic migrants and therefore not entitled Canada Goose Jackets to asylum.

The UNHCR, which in July expressed concern over the case, will not be a direct party to the case but was granted leave to file written submissions about Australia obligations under UN conventions.

The new UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra Al Hussein, last month used his maiden address to accuse Australia of a of human rights violations in its canada goose replica treatment of asylum seekers.

The last time the UNHCR sought such an intervention in Australia was in 2006 when it joined a case about temporary protection canada goose black friday sale visas for refugees.

The High Court does not have the power to order the detainees be returned to Australia from Nauru, but can compel the government to pay the group compensation if it finds in their favour.

Chia said the case was being closely watched. If the judges find in canada goose coats on sale favour of the asylum seekers on international law issues, the case could be cited elsewhere in the world to support claims by asylum seekers.

think the court may well decided that this Canada Goose online case steps over the line. because it Canada Goose Outlet is an extraordinary example, she said.

The Australian Human Rights Commission, which earlier this year held an inquiry into the wellbeing of children canada goose outlet store locations in Australia canada goose immigration detention centres, was also given permission to file written submissions to canadagoosejackets7v the court.

A Opera Royal do Castelo de Versailles, verdadeira joia arquitetural, foi inaugurada em 1770 para o casamento de Louis XVI e Marie Antoinette.

A Opera de Versailles será a primeira sala elíptica da França. Seu arquiteto, Ange Jacques Gabriel, influenciado pela arquitetura italiana e pela melhor qualidade acústica das salas ovais ou redondas quebrou a tradição francesa de salas de teatro retangulares.

A Opera Royal não funciona todos os dias. Apesar de ter sido restaurada recentemente ela continua uma obra frágil e acolhe o público em algumas datas determinadas.

Sugestão de programa: antes ou após o espetáculo da Opera Royal, tome um drink no bar do Hotel Trianon de Versailles. Belo hotel pertinho do castelo.
