The person in question arrived in the State on 6 June 2003 and claimed asylum. The Office of the Refugee Applications Commissioner recommended that he should not be declared as a refugee and he was notified of this recommendation on 15 March 2004. He appealed this recommendation to the Refugee Appeals Tribunal. Following an oral hearing, the original recommendation was affirmed and he was informed of this decision on 28 September 2004. In accordance with section 3 of the Immigration Act 1999, as amended, the person concerned was informed on 11 October 2004 that it was proposed to make a deportation order in his case. He was given the options of making representations within 15 working days setting out the reasons as to why he should not be deported; leaving the State voluntarily before an order was made; or consenting to the making of a deportation order. To date, no response has been received from or on behalf of the person concerned. This person's case file will be considered taking account of section 3(6) of the Immigration Act 1999, as amended, and section 5 of the Refugee Act 1996, prohibition of refoulement. The file will be submitted to me for decision in due course.
