Written answers (Question to Foreign)

I can confirm to the Deputy that I am aware of this difficult and long-running consular case and have been in written contact with the citizen’s family here in Ireland. The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has been providing extensive and ongoing consular assistance to the family of this citizen since first being made aware of the case. Officials from my Department have met regularly with this citizen’s family, and most recently on 28 November 2018. My Department will continue to provide all possible and appropriate assistance in relation to this difficult situation.
