163. Deputy Clare Daly asked the Minister for Justice and Equality if the deportation order will be revoked in regard to a person (details supplied). [44323/18]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Charles Flanagan): I am advised that the person concerned is the subject of a Deportation Order made on 7 September 2018, following the refusal of the international protection claim made by the person concerned.  That Order remains valid and in place.
Representations have been received requesting that the Deportation Order be revoked in this case, and these representations will be considered.
The decision to ensue from the consideration of this request will be to have the existing deportation order 'affirmed' or 'revoked'.  Once such a decision has been made, this decision will be notified in writing.  In the meantime, the deportation order remains valid and in place.
The Deputy may wish to note that queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Services (INIS) of my Department by e-mail using the Oireachtas Mail facility which has been specifically established for this purpose.
