Minister entitled to refuse residency to uninsured Bangladeshi driver

Supreme Court says decision on Bangladeshi man was justified.

The Supreme Court has ruled the Minister for Justice was entitled to refuse long-term residency, exempt from work permit conditions, to a Bangladeshi man on foot of his conviction for driving without insurance.

The disputed decision was made in 2011 and the man, who has lived here for many years, has since obtained Irish citizenship, with the effect he no longer had an interest in the legal proceedings.

Because the case concerned the extent of the Minister’s powers related to applications for residency exempt from work permit conditions, she sought to appeal and the High Court certified certain important points of law should, in the public interest, be decided by the Supreme Court. It in turn decided the Minister should pay the man’s legal costs of the appeal,

The points included whether the Minister retains an executive power, notwithstanding provisions of the 2004 Immigration Act, to operate non-statutory schemes for granting permission to be or remain in the State.
