Nigerian family face deportation after Supreme Court ruling

Immigrants claimed department order was defective as it did not come from Minister.

A Nigerian family of four face immediate deportation after failing to convince the Supreme Court that the order for their deportation was defective because it had not been “personally directed” by the Minister for Justice.

Mr Justice John MacMenamin said that departmental officials who signed the order were the alter-ego of the Minister and their decisions were, legally and constitutionally, the Minister’s acts and decisions.
