In relation to cases impacted by the ruling of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) in the Chenchooliah case, my Department is currently working to develop the new processes necessitated by the ruling.

As soon as those processes have been finalised, officials from my Department will be in written contact with the people whose immigration cases are impacted by that ruling vis a vis their position in the State.

There are also a very small number of other, somewhat similar, cases which remain before the High Court. As the people involved in those particular cases have ongoing legal proceedings, it would not be appropriate to comment further on those cases at this time.
