Written answers (Question to Justice)

The person concerned is the subject of a Deportation Order and her son is the subject of a Judicial Review in relation to his asylum application. The matter is therefore sub judice.

Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to the INIS by e-mail using the Oireachtas Mail facility which has been specifically established for this purpose. This service enables up to date information on such cases to be obtained without the need to seek information by way of the Parliamentary Questions process. The Deputy may consider using the e-mail service except in cases where the response from the INIS is, in the Deputy’s view, inadequate or too long awaited.
