Controversies

In March 2020, the Administrative Appeals Tribunal ordered that an Afghan asylum seeker who had previously been a part of the Afghan National Army be granted a temporary protection visa. Tudge, who was Acting Immigration Minister at the time,instantly appealed against the AAT’s decision in the Federal Court, which failed.

However, during the 6-day appeal process, the asylum seeker had been kept in the detention centre. Six months later, the Federal Court found that Tudge had “engaged in conduct which can only be described as criminal” and had deprived the asylum seeker of his liberty, which has prompted calls for Tudge’s resignation.
