JW LEAKS has updated their "Human Rights" page with hundreds of pages of documents released, all relating to 19 separate court cases involving Jehovah's Witnesses conducted through the European Court of Human Rights and also the Australian Refugee Tribunal.
The 9 cases that were run through the Australian Refugee Tribunal by the Jehovah's Witnesses all came from Lebanon.
One former member of Jehovah's Witnesses, who advised on a number of refugee and migration cases for Jehovah's Witnesses and the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of Australia, and provided the documents and background information (yet to be published) to JW Leaks, stated:
"Many of the cases before the courts were nothing more than a sham to get family and friends, primarily from the Middle East and Russia, into the country of Australia under false pretences, namely under claims of religious persecution. Some worked, some failed. Those elders helping with many cases were not licensed migration solicitors [lawyers] and clearly broke the law in assisting on these cases. The role that Bethel played in advising and assisting in all of this is irreprehensible. Lawlessness in the extreme. Not only were they helping Jehovah's Witnesses to get into Australia from countries around the world, they were also helping Australian circuit overseers and missionaries get into a number of Asian countries with the use of dummy corporations and businesses set up by Jehovah's Witnesses for this very purpose."
Under Australian law (Migration Act 1958) it is unlawful to assist a person in any way with their immigration application unless you are a registered Migration Agent.

JW Leaks has been informed that documents relating to the migration scam will be handed over to the Australian Minister for Immigration and Citizenship, Chris Bowen MP, in early 2013.
More documents will be published by JW Leaks to coincide with this.
