Written answers (Question to Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform)

The refugee in question made an application for family reunification in May 2005. The application was forwarded to the Office of the Refugee Applications Commissioner for investigation as required under section 18 of the Refugee Act 1996. When the investigation has been completed, the commissioner will prepare and forward a report to the Department of Justice, Equality and Law Reform. On receipt of the report, the application will be considered and a decision will issue shortly thereafter.
