ITF v Minister for Justice and Equality Ireland and the Attorney General

By order of Mr Justice Barniville dated 15 October 2018, the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission(“the Commission”) was given liberty to intervene as amicus curiase in these proceedings.

The case centres on the request from the International Transport Worker’s Federation (ITF) for an immediate moratorium on the grant or renewal of work permits under the atypical work permit scheme for non-EU fishermen, pending a review of conditions attaching to the scheme. The ITF seeks the moratorium after it identified a number of individuals who arrived in Ireland on foot of permits granted under the scheme, and who it says were subsequently subjected to human trafficking and other severe forms of labour exploitation on Irish fishing vessels.
