Written answers (Question to Justice)

As the Deputy will appreciate, I am not in a position to interpret the law or to provide advice on a particular case in response to a Parliamentary Question. Moreover, on the basis of the information provided, the matter does not appear to come within my field of responsibility as Minister for Justice and Equality.
