Dáil Éireann Debate
134. Deputy Bernard J. Durkan asked the Minister for Justice and Law Reform if he will review the decision to deport in the case of a person (details supplied) in County Louth, given they are in Ireland since 2002 and have commitments here; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [44543/10]
Minister for Justice and Law Reform (Deputy Dermot Ahern): I refer the Deputy to my replies given to Parliamentary Questions No. 164 on 14 October 2008, No. 264 on 3 February 2009, No. 197 on 1 July 2009 and No. 277 on 8 December 2009. The status of the person concerned remains as set out in those replies. The person referred to by the Deputy is the subject of a Deportation Order, signed on 24 August 2004, following a comprehensive and thorough examination of his asylum claim and a detailed examination of the representations he submitted for consideration under Section 3 of the Immigration Act 1999 (as amended).
The effect of the Deportation Order is that the person concerned must leave the State and remain thereafter out of the State. The enforcement of the Deportation Order is an operational matter for the Garda National Immigration Bureau. I should remind the Deputy that queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to INIS by email 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 this information through the more administratively expensive Parliamentary Questions
