Question

110. Deputy Bernard J. Durkan asked the Minister for Justice and Equality if it will be possible to review on humanitarian grounds the case of a person (details supplied) in Dublin 6; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [21179/15]

Answer

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): I am advised by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) of my Department that the person concerned is a subject of a Deportation Order that was effected on 16 June 2013. The person concerned recently returned to the State in breach of the conditions of that order.
The person concerned has ongoing Judicial Review proceedings seeking to quash a decision refusing readmittance to the asylum process under Section 17(7) of the Refugee Act, 1996 (as amended). As the foregoing matters are sub judice, I am precluded from commenting further.
Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to INIS of my Department by e-mail using the Oireachtas Mail facility which has been specifically established for this purpose. The 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 in cases where the response from the INIS is, in the Deputy's view, inadequate or too long awaited.
