MIGRATION - appeal from a judgment of the Federal Circuit Court of Australia - whether the primary judge erred in finding that the AAT did not fail to consider the applicant's claim on the basis on which it was actually made, and/or drew a material inference that was arbitrary, unreasonable and not open to it on the evidence - whether the primary judge erred in the interpretation and/or application of the well-foundedness requirement - whether the primary judge erred by finding the AAT had asked itself the correct legal question and/or applied a correct proposition of law in respect of the applicant's claims concerning his religious practice of animal sacrifice - whether the primary judge engaged in an impermissible merits review - appeal dismissed, with costs
