Man deported from Ireland to Jordan over ISIS links

The man had lost earlier challenges to halt his deportation

The Department of Justice has said it has deported a man identified by gardaí as the main recruiter in Ireland for the so-called Islamic State militant group.

The man, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, was deported to Jordan yesterday after failing to secure an emergency injunction at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.

The Department of Justice has said the man was a facilitator for those within the State who wished to travel to conflict zones.

The man had gone to the High Court to prevent his deportation denying claims he had consulted with senior violent extremist leaders outside Ireland or recruited members for Islamic extremist groups.

On Tuesday, his lawyers made an application to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg to secure an emergency ‘Rule 39’ injunction to prevent his deportation of the person.

The Strasbourg court refused.

The Department of Justice has confirmed that he was deported from Dublin Airport at lunchtime yesterday and arrived in Jordan yesterday evening.
