Default TRA 900 Hours-Bogus Document-Criminal Complaint

Met a lawyer yesterday who confirmed to me that DEEWR has initiated a Criminal complaint through the DPP against a student on the basis the 900 hours was bogus.

In fact according to the student she had paid worked at a famous Franchise for 900 hours . However she claims the agent has obtained the TRA with another work experience letter, unknown to her.

I understand that the RMA had a visit from DIAC in 2009.

It is possible that TRA may now withdraw the skills assessment.

Glenn

If that is the case, she should immediately get the best lawyer (on success basis ) and sue the Migration Agent from here to Kingdom come and the agent is driven to hell for messing up someone's life.

All agents are insured for professional indemnity for errors, omissions, deficiency and negligence. Someone should advise her to get the lawyers to send immediate litigation papers under civil contract laws.

No point on complaining to OMARA to get a slap on the wrist.

Cheers

The RMA is still practising despite the visit from DIAC.

She has to now defend the criminal charges .

The lawyer will be looking at the prospects of action against the agent for damages.

What a crazy situation!
TRA surely has to withdraw the skills assessment based on the fraudulent documentation - how can it not?
What happens then to the student if her claims are correct? Will TRA issue another assessment based on the 'right' papers?

It is now evident that the TRA's investigative team has initiated action to revoke the TRA of students who have lodged application.

With this TRA action DIAC's will have no problem to cancel the TR or PR or refuse .

However the TRA decision will be reviewable at the Federal Court.

What a mess.

Default Trades Recognition Australia TRA not valid Federal Magistrate

Federal Magistrate Driver has just handed down a decision in the matter of SINGH in the FMC in Sydney.
This is a very important case which finds that TRA was not validly appointed (ie, not validly authorised to do skills assessments- TRA is responsible for number of trade occupations skills assessments including hairdressers, cooks, motor mechanics, etc) as at 28 September 2009 and that the subsequent application for a visa subclass 485 made on 7 July 2009 and subsequently on an appeal to the MRT were not infected by PIC 4020 considerations because the TRA was not validly appointed at the relevant time. Accordingly, the alleged false statements to the TRA concerning the applicant's work experience were not capable of grounding conduct said to enliven PIC 4020 considerations.

The Minister is most probably going to appeal the decision.
