Natural Justice does not apply to the Migration Act 1958

There are PLENTY of instances where 'natural justice' does NOT apply in Australia.

It happens in the  (kangaroo) courts every single day.

Here is just one example where it is explicitly written, contrary to the inherited laws of England, where natural justice DOES NOT APPLY.

That's what happens when you run a Prison Isle.

From the:

MIGRATION ACT 1958 - SECT 501

Refusal or cancellation of visa on character grounds
 
Decision of Minister or delegate--natural justice applies
             (1)  The Minister may refuse to grant a visa to a person if the person does not satisfy the Minister that the person passes the character test. 

Note:          Character test is defined by subsection (6). 

             (2)  The Minister may cancel a visa that has been granted to a person if:
                     (a)  the Minister reasonably suspects that the person does not pass the character test; and
                     (b)  the person does not satisfy the Minister that the person passes the character test. 

Decision of Minister--natural justice does not apply

Still not convinced Australia is a 'police state'?
