Following the failure of their asylum claims, the persons concerned proceeded to submit applications for subsidiary protection. These applications were approved with the consequence that the persons concerned have been granted permission to remain in the State for the period to 30th April, 2016. These decisions were conveyed in writing to the persons concerned by letters dated 30th April, 2013.

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.
