May 2019
Summary: 

All refugees, refugee claimants and other vulnerable migrants applying to the Federal Court should ask their lawyer to request anonymity or confidentiality, unless they are comfortable with their name and details of their claim or application being public. Sensitive information from court cases is routinely republished by various internet sites, so that a simple Google search of the person’s name often yields results from the decision.
