nt, said the decision to revoke Haneef's visa "looks bad."
"Andrews' decision can be challenged on the grounds of bias or taking into account irrelevant considerations in making his decision -- this includes political considerations," he said.
Barns said he doubted Andrews' decision to cancel the visa could be considered "reasonable" -- the terminology required under the Migration Act.
"It looks as though the commonwealth has sought to get around their failure in Brisbane this morning to stop Haneef from getting bail, by using the Migration Act to achieve this end," he said.
"Andrews could have made a decision on Haneef when he was charged over the weekend - why wait until now?" he said.
"It is doubtful that Andrews' decision is reasonable as he suggests, given the weakness of the case against Haneef and that he is an innocent man," he said.
Senior University of New South Wales constitutional law lecturer Andrew Lynch also predicted Haneef would have a case to appeal against the decision.
He doubted the government was basing its decision on any extra information, saying police would have used all the evidence in their unsuccessful application for Haneef's bail to be refused.
The decision to cancel Haneef's visa seemed to be based on him being a relative of men implicated in the UK terrorism attacks, which was "unsatisfactory," he said.
And he rejected Andrews' assertions that the decision to cancel his visa was not prejudging Haneef's guilt or innocence.
"He's saying that Haneef's visa's cancelled because he's caught up in this, whereas the bail was granted because of a judicial finding that it wasn't," Lynch told Sky News.
However another newspaper has reported that Haneef had been in frequent and extensive contact with two men at the centre of Britain's car-bomb plot on the eve of Page: 1 2 3 4 Related medicine news :1
