Question

150. Deputy Bernard J. Durkan asked the Minister for Justice and Equality the residency status of a person (details supplied) in County Kildare in respect of whom a deportation order is proposed; if she has considered the clear threat to this person's life and well-being in the event of being returned; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [43426/15]

Answer

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): I am informed by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) of my Department that the person referred to is the subject of a Deportation Order made on 4th May 2011 and therefore has no entitlement to residency in the State. She has also been refused Subsidiary Protection in a decision issued on 18th April 2011. Judicial Review proceedings were issued on 11th June 2011 challenging the refusal which are currently on appeal before the Supreme Court and accordingly, as that matter is sub judice I do not propose to comment further.
I should remind the Deputy that queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to the INIS of my Department 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 through the more expensive Parliamentary Questions process.
