Moeller family granted permanent residency - criteria to be reviewed

The family of Dr Bernhard Moeller (whose son, Lukas has Down syndrome) has been granted permanent resident status in Australia. The decision was announced today (26th November) in the Senate.

The family's appeal was rejected yesterday, and the Minister intervened today.

The Minister, Senator Chris Evans, has announced that the immigration treatment of people with disabilities would be referred to the Joint Standing Committee on Migration.
