IRELAND/NIGERIA: Nigerian's Woman Case Put Back Untill May 28th

Nigerian woman Pamela Izevbekhai's case before the Supreme Court has been put back until May 28th.

She is challenging her deportation and that of her two daughters.

Earlier this month, her legal team applied to withdraw their representation of her, stating that they had received conflicting instructions from her which went to the root of the case.

It relates to whether her claim that she had a daughter who died from female genital mutilation in Nigeria is truthful or not.

Lawyers for the State said they had new evidence which, if correct, would show her case was based on a lie.

Today, the court heard that Pamela was talking to a number of firms of solicitors in relation to the case and the Chief Justice adjourned the matter for mention on May 28th.
