Statement from the Minister for Justice & Equality on the immigration issues that arose on a Ferry today


21 November, 2019


“I was extremely concerned to learn of another incident of people being found in a sealed lorry container, on this occasion on board a ferry.


“There is an active Garda investigation underway and I would appeal to anyone with any information on these nefarious activities to come forward.  I welcome the statement issued by An Garda Síochána earlier today.


“The persons found in the lorry container are now being cared for by State services.  As part of that care, they will receive initial medical assessments.”
