Over the weekend of 28-29th July 2007, the following happened:
- Charges against Dr Haneef were dropped.
- Kevin Andrews refused to reinstate Dr Haneef’s visa.
- Dr Haneef was given the all-clear to leave Australia
- Kevin Andrews again refused to reinstate Dr Haneef’s visa.
- Kevin Andrews insinuated that Dr Haneef’s desire to leave Australia was ‘suspicious’
- Dr Haneef left Australia and returned to Bangalore
As of 30th July, the story is still alive, despite attempts by the Government to hose it down.
With every new statement by Kevin Andrews, the hole he is digging for himself gets bigger…
