Written Answers. - Residency Permits.

Deputy Martin Ferris asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform if the application for residency by a person (details supplied) has been successful. [22018/07]

  Deputy Brian Lenihan: The position is that an application was received from the person concerned on 23 February 2007 for Subsidiary Protection under the European Communities (Eligibility for Protection) Regulations, 2006 (Statutory Instrument No. 518 of 2006).

His application was refused by my Department on 22 March 2007.

The applicant instituted Judicial Review proceedings on 10 May 2007 challenging the Subsidiary Protection refusal and accordingly, as the matter is sub judice, I do not propose to comment further.
