Dáil Eireann Debate
202. Mr. Boyle asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform the reason a person (details supplied) has not been granted leave to remain here, in view of the fact that they are not seeking status here. [37464/05]
Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform (Mr. McDowell): The person concerned arrived in the State on 29 September 2001 with a valid work permit and was given permission to remain until 24 April 2002, the date his work permit expired. He has remained in the State without permission since this date. Subsequently, in accordance with section 3 of the Immigration Act 1999, as amended, he was informed by letter on 6 October 2005 that the Minister proposed to make a deportation order in respect of him. He was given the options, to be exercised within 15 working days, of making representations to the Minister setting out the reasons he should be allowed to remain temporarily in the State, leaving the State before an order is made or consenting to the making of a deportation order.
This person’s case file, including all representations submitted, will be considered under section 3(6) of the Immigration Act 1999, as amended, and section 5 of the Refugee Act 1996. I expect the file to be passed to me for decision in due course.
