Deportation Orders

Section 50 of the International Protection Act 2015  

A person cannot be expelled from the state if the life or freedom of the person is threatened based on race, religion etc.

Humanitarian Considerations

The Minister is required to consider a number of matters while considering the evidence but humanitarian concerns is one such consideration.

European Charter on Fundamental Rights

Degrading treatment and torture is prohibited by the EU charter along with other freedoms provided for in the charter.

Notification of Deportation

The person will generally be notified in writing of the Ministers deportation proposal and this will be in the persons own language.

The person is entitled to make their own representations then within a short timeframe.

As this is an urgent matter the person cannot be passive and representations must be made with an urgency on humanitarian or compassionate grounds if the person is not consenting to the proposal.

If there is an endangerment to life, for example, this must be brought to the attention of the Minister.

Article 41 Irish Constitution – Family

Any relevant family concerns as a consequence of the deportation must be brought to the attention of the Minister as the Constitution protects the family unit.

Constitutional Right of Access to the Courts

If a person receives a deportation order they have a right to challenge the validity of the order.

The court can apply a reasonableness test and proportionality test after review of the facts with respect to the deportation decision.
