Luximon v Minister for Justice and Equality/ Balchand v Minister for Justice and Equality – November 2017

The Supreme Court granted the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission (‘the Commission’) liberty to appear as amicus curiae in these appeals. The Commission previously appeared as amicus curiae in the proceedings before the Court of Appeal. The central issue is whether the Minister for Justice and Equality is required to have regard to the right to private and family life, as guaranteed by the Constitution and the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), in deciding whether to renew or vary the permission of the families concerned to be in the State.
