Asif v The Minister for Justice and Equality (2019) IEHC 616

The High Court refused an application for judicial review of the decision of the Minister for Justice and Equality to revoke the residence card of the Applicant, a national of Pakistan who was married to an EU national.

The Applicant submitted an application to be granted permission to remain in the State pursuant to S4 of the Immigration Act 2004. The court held that there was no obligation on the Minister for Justice to consider the Applicant’s application for permission to remain other than under International Protection legislation or EU law. The court also upheld the findings of the Minister for Justice and Equality that the marriage was one of convenience contracted for the sole purpose of the Applicant obtaining residency in the State.
