Dáil Éireann Debate
175. Deputy Bernard J. Durkan asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform the position regarding a citizenship application in respect of persons (details supplied) in Dublin 24; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [26149/10]
Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform (Deputy Dermot Ahern): Valid applications for certificates of naturalisation from the persons referred to in the Deputy’s Question were received in the Citizenship Division of my Department in May & November 2006 and I decided in my absolute discretion not to grant certificates of naturalisation. The persons in question were informed of this decision and the reasons for refusal in letters issued to them on 16 February, 2010.
It is open to the persons concerned to lodge new applications for certificates of naturalisation with the Citizenship Division of my Department at any time. However, they should bear in mind the reasons for refusal of their previous applications.
