Pamela Izevbekhai will represent herself when she appears before the Supreme Court later this morning.

Last Friday, her lawyers, Murphy Mc Elligott from Dun Laoghaire withdrew from the case after they informed the Court that they received a threatening postcard telling them to ”back off”.

This was her fourth legal team since her deportation battle began.

A date for her case is due to be decided today following her unsuccessful attempt last Friday to oppose the State’s application to admit additional affidavits containing new evidence disputing her case.

It emerged earlier this year that documents detailing the death of her daughter Elizabeth from Female Genital Mutilation in 1994 were forgeries.

It’s the States claim that her case is based on a lie however Ms Izevbekhai always maintains that if deported her two daughters will be subject to Female Genital mutilation.
