The Court of Appeal has said it plans to deliver its decision on a challenge to the deportation of a man accused of being the main recruiter in Ireland for ISIS “as soon as possible”.
The man, whose identity is protected, denies the allegations and claims he will be tortured if he is returned to the Middle East.
His deportation was ordered after the State claimed he was a threat to national security, but it was put on hold following an intervention by the European Court of Human Rights.
His lawyers plan to challenge the relevant Irish law, but the Court of Appeal has said it is anxious to give judgement rather than remain in a “limbo situation”
