Written answers (Question to Justice)

The person concerned is the subject of a Deportation Order, made on 15th July, 2011, following a comprehensive and thorough examination of his asylum claim and his application for subsidiary protection and the detailed examination of the representations he submitted for consideration under Section 3 (6) of the Immigration Act 1999 (as amended). Subsequently, in March, 2012, the person concerned sought a right of residency in the State, accompanied by a right to work, based on the principles set out in the Zambrano Judgment. This request is under consideration at present. Once a decision has been made, this decision, and the consequences of the decision, will be conveyed in writing to the person concerned. In the mean-time, as a person subject of a valid Deportation Order, the person concerned is legally obliged to comply with any reporting requirements placed on him by the Garda National Immigration Bureau.

Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to 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 INIS is, in the Deputy’s view, inadequate or too long awaited.
