Priorities of Latvian Presidency of European Council: Latvian Ambassador to Ireland
The Civil Registration (Amendment) Bill 2014 has been introduced in the House. The statistics I am reading are in the briefing on that Bill. It has not concluded but it has been introduced. Our end would also say that Latvia has a responsibility because the trafficking of women is organised there rather than in Ireland. We have attempted to stop some of these sham marriages and we fell foul of the law.
