Discounting evidence due to ‘conflicting evidence’ or ‘doubt’

In Re Minister of Immigration, Local Government and Ethnic Affairs v Gamdur Singh Dhillon and Marcelle Suzanne Maree Lievense Dhillon [1990] FCA 144 the Court said:

it is not correct to discount a factor favourable to an applicant by reference to conflicting evidence or doubts. A person affected by a statutory decision is entitled to have the case determined by reference to found facts, not suspicions or conflicts of evidence.
