High Court clears way for man's deportation
The High Court has upheld a decision by the Immigration Minister to cancel a visa for a man who has been in Australia since 1974.
Stefan Nystrom's parents migrated to Australia in 1966 but he was born in 1973 during a visit to Sweden, arriving back in Australia when he was only a month old.
He has lived in Australia ever since, does not speak Swedish and has little knowledge of his overseas relatives.
He has never taken out Australian citizenship but had argued he should be considered as an absorbed person.
The Government has been trying to deport Mr Nystrom after cancelling his visa because of a string of criminal offences which began when he was 10.
Mr Nystrom has also served eight terms in jail.
The High Court has upheld the Immigration Minister's decision that Mr Nystrom's visa be cancelled, clearing the way for his deportation.
