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

I propose to take Questions Nos. 520 and 524 together.

The person concerned arrived in the State on the 30 November 2008 and applied for asylum on the 1 December 2008. The Refugee Applications Commissioner refused her a declaration of refugee status. This decision was subsequently upheld by the Refugee Appeals Tribunal. A Deportation Order was made in respect of her on the 21 September 2010.

The person concerned instituted Judicial Review proceedings on the 14 December 2010 challenging the Deportation Order made in respect of her and accordingly, as the matter is sub judice, I do not propose to comment further.

I should remind the Deputy that queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to INIS by Email using the Oireachtas Mail facility which has been specifically established for this purpose. The service enables up-to-date information on such cases to be obtained without the need to seek this information through the more administratively expensive PQ process.
