Kevin Andrews: “I have formed a reasonable suspicion…”

The Immigration Minister is currently being interviewed on Lateline, and he is saying that Dr Haneef fails the character test as he (the Minister) has formed “a reasonable suspicion”.

From today’s SMH story:

“The whole circumstances surrounding Haneef’s attempted hasty departure from Australia, including chat room conversations, when viewed against his clear prior association with the Ahmed brothers, led me to form a reasonable suspicion as required by the migration legislation,” Mr Andrews said.

Isn’t it great that this is all it takes – the minister to form “a reasonable suspicion”?
