Woman fights deportation

A woman who claims she faces significant risk of harm if deported to the Democratic Republic of Congo has won a Supreme Court order restraining her deportation pending a decision on her two judicial review applications.

Ms Justice Mary Laffoy, noting that lawyers for the Minister for Justice had said it can take several years for applications for leave to bring asylum related judicial reviews to be decided, urged these applications should be expedited.

She was giving the court’s judgment on the woman’s challenge to the High Court’s September 2013 refusal of injunctions restraining her deportation pending decisions on two applications for leave for judicial review.

The woman came to Ireland in 2007 but was refused asylum.
