Department of Justice and Equality
Deportation Orders Re-examination
102. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality if he will address a matter relating to the case of a person (details supplied) on compassionate and health grounds; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [45943/19]
I am informed by my officials that the person concerned is the subject of a Deportation Order signed on 01/02/2019.
Representations have been received on behalf of the person mentioned by the Deputy requesting that the deportation order be revoked, pursuant to the provisions of Section 3(11) of the Immigration Act 1999 (as amended).
This request will be considered as soon as possible. A decision will then be made to either "affirm" or "revoke" the existing deportation order. This decision will be communicated in writing. In the meantime, the deportation order remains valid and in place.
Queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to the Immigration Service of my Department 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 the Immigration Service is, in the Deputy's view, inadequate or too long awaited.
