They were supposed to deliver a report in December 2014 but it was delayed until April. Then we read that it will not be ready until May. It shows they are just buying their time and not considering the lives of the people who are victims of a system we didn’t create.”Meanwhile, Minister of State Aodhán Ó Ríordáin has welcomed the publication of the new International Protection Bill.“There are three separate stages to apply to remain in the state, each with its own application process. This Bill will create a more efficient application process by introducing a single procedure mechanism”, he said.
