Dáil Eireann Debate
441. Mr. Durkan asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform the position in relation to family reunification in the case of a person (details supplied) in Dublin 22; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [18420/06]
Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform (Mr. McDowell): The refugee in question made an application for family reunification in respect of her husband and children under section 18 of the Refugee Act, 1996 in January 2005. The application was forwarded to the Office of the Refugee Applications Commissioner for investigation as required under section 18 of the Act.
A report was forwarded to the Family Reunification Section of my Department on the 22nd December 2005. Following further examination, a letter has recently issued to the refugee’s representative seeking clarification of a number of points. Once a response has been received, the application will be examined further.
