You’ll recall how asylum seekers initially apply for protection and refugee status from the Office of the Refugee Applications Commissioner.
If their initial application is turned down they can appeal the decision to the Refugee Appeals Tribunal.
Further to this…
In 2014 the Refugee Appeals Trib. set aside > 46% of decisions by ORAC! 80 out of 173. That is a huge % indicating errors made at 1st stage
