very interesting story, There was always speculation about this race of nationals gaining visa,s easily to enter Australia. I recall a couple of years ago in perth commenting just how many of these nationals there was walking around and working, this doesnt come as a surprise at all to me. What does amaze me is how this agency has got away with it so long, what will happen to all these people now will they be deported or allowed to stay in the country?

i wish to see the smiles of loved ones reunited after months of waiting, god bless you all
