I have seen many things, one stands out in respect of the poor standard of representation in the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal or AIT or Immigration Appeal Tribunal (IAT) before it was reformed, or rather the government shuffled the letters, but everyone kept the same job, with a different name.
The representative, he does not even merit the word lawyer nor could he probably spell the word lawyer, was making submissions on behalf of a East European woman. I could not understand his attempt at English, neither could the Judge, the person who ultimately translated the representatives submissions into English was the appellant.
