One Matter, One Client – Five Successful Judicial Reviews!

Last year a man retained our office to challenge his refused Pre-Removal Risk Assessment (PRRA) to the Federal Court of Canada. He advised our office that this was the fifth time that his PRRA had been refused, and so would be his fifth time challenging the matter to the Court. We reviewed his application materials and the decisions already made by the Federal Court to make our arguments.

The Court allowed the application for Judicial Review and was in complete agreement that enough was enough. No longer satisfied in only quashing the PRRA refusal, the Court issued clear directions to the next Officer to re-determine the file, including the disclosure of communications that Citizenship and Immigration Canada had withheld from our client and the requirement that a PRRA interview be held.
