I can confirm that my Department is aware of this case and has been providing all possible consular advice, support and assistance to the family through our Embassy in Luxembourg and our Consular Assistance Unit in Dublin.

As with all consular cases, it would not be appropriate to discuss the details of a case or to comment on matters pertaining to a legal process in another jurisdiction. As the Deputy will appreciate, our officials are precluded from intervening in judicial processes overseas. However, I can assure the Deputy that we will continue to provide all possible advice and consular support to the family as appropriate.
