Mr And Mrs Amjah
SBS2  |  December 7, 2009

After serving with the Australian Navy in the Pacific during the war, Malayan Abdul Amjah was kicked out, even though he had a British passport and an Australian wife and child. A year later he entered Australia illegally, but was arrested and sentenced to six months jail. His appeal was the case that first broke the White Australia Policy Act of 1901.
