A MAURITIAN man living in Wexford, who stayed illegally in Ireland, has been ordered to put arrangements in place to leave the country in two months.

Madir Boobun, with an address at 24 Lower George's Street, Flat 2, Wexford, appeared before last Tuesday's sitting of New Ross District Court charged with being a non-national having effected a change of residence from the Garda National Emigration Bureau in Dublin did fail within 48 hours of arriving in Wexford to report his arrival in that district to the registration officer.

He is also charged with remaining in the state after the date set for his departure, namely April 9, 2009, other than in accordance with the terms of a permission granted to him on April 8, 2008, from the Minister for Justice. The defendant was charged with these offences at 24 Lower George's Street, Flat 2, Wexford, on March 15.

The court heard that the defendant arrived in Ireland in 2008 and was given permission by the Garda National Emigration Bureau to stay for a course for one year. It expired on April 8, 2009, and the defendant remained on illegally in the state.

Defence solicitor Ed King said his 20-year-old client went back to emigration in May 2009 and requirements were made on him to have ¤1,500 in his bank account. However, he was short by ¤124.

Mr. King said he did enrol on a course with the Ideal Business College. The Garda informed the court that the defendant was expelled from that college.

Judge Donnchadh O Buachalla remanded him on bail until June 8 on his undertaking to put all arrangements in place to leave the country in two months and not to take up employment. He was further ordered to sign on each day at Wexford Garda Station.
