Refugees allowed to contest refusal to let relatives join them

TWO SOMALI nationals who have been granted refugee status here have secured leave from the High Court to challenge the Minister for Justice’s refusal to allow them to bring their families to Ireland.

The plaintiffs and their families want the court to quash the Minister’s refusal of their application for family reunification under section 18 of the 1996 Refugee Act.

They are also seeking the Minister to reconsider as a matter of urgency the matter in a manner that is lawful and fair.
