In last night’s newscast, you also heard Pacheco’ testifying to the Committee that she felt intimidated by the presence of Ministers at the Immigration Department. The Immigration officer explained that when a Minister was involved with applications, officers are almost forced to comply because otherwise it could result in bad repercussions. She also pointed out that Ministers were involved in requesting immigration files from the Department, which was a highly questionable practise.
