Question 512: To ask the Minister for Justice and Equality if he will review the decision of deportation in the case of a person (details supplied) in County Limerick with particular reference to the Zambrano case; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [9462/12]
The person concerned is the subject of a Deportation Order, signed on 20 April 2010, following a comprehensive and thorough examination of his asylum claim and his application for subsidiary protection, and a detailed examination of the representations he submitted for consideration under Section 3 of the Immigration Act 1999 (as amended).
Further representations were received from the person concerned asking that his Deportation Order be revoked, in accordance with the provisions of Section 3(11) of the Immigration Act, 1999 (as amended). Following consideration of the information submitted, the Deportation Order was affirmed and the person concerned and his legal representative were advised of this decision by letter dated 19 July 2010.
An application by this person in respect of the Zambrano Judgement has now been received. This will be considered before a final decision is made. Once a decision has been made, this decision and the consequences of the decision will be convoyed in writing to the person concerned.
Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to INIS by e-mail using the Oireachtas Mail facility which has been specifically established for this purpose. This service enables up to date information on such cases to be obtained without the need to seek information by way of the Parliamentary Questions process. The Deputy may consider using the e-mail service except in cases where the response from INIS is, in the Deputy’s view, inadequate or too long awaited.
