Deputy Brian Lenihan Deputy Brian Lenihan
Deputy Brian Lenihan: I refer the Deputy to Parliamentary Question No. 327 of Wednesday 27 September, 2006 in regard to the first named person and the written reply to that question. The position regarding the first named person is unchanged.
The second named person arrived in the State on 20 May, 2005 and applied for asylum. Her application was refused following consideration of her case by the Office of the Refugee Applications Commissioner and, on appeal, by the Refugee Appeals Tribunal. Subsequently, in  accordance with Section 3 of the Immigration Act, 1999, as amended, she was informed by letter dated 26 April, 2006, that the Minister proposed to make a deportation order in respect of her. She was given the options, to be exercised within 15 working days, of making representations to the Minister setting out the reasons why she should be allowed to remain temporarily in the State; leaving the State before an order is made or consenting to the making of a deportation order. Representations have been received on behalf of the person concerned.
This person’s case file, including all representations submitted, will be considered under Section 3(6) of the Immigration Act, 1999, as amended, and Section 5 of the Refugee Act, 1996 (Prohibition of Refoulement). I expect the file to be passed to me for decision in due course.
