A Dublin Court is being prevented by the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) to order the deportation of a man who is accused of being Daesh recruiter.

ECHR is preventing man’s deportation saying that he must not return to his home country because he is ill and he may be tortured. The Dublin court has already decided that the unnamed man, is the “foremost organizer and facilitator of travel by extremists prepared to undertake violent action on behalf of Daesh.”

Still, ECHR made an order temporarily preventing Ireland from deporting him. The allegedly Daesh linked man, is denying all the accusations saying that he doesn’t represent a threat to national security.

The unnamed 52-year-old-man didn’t show up in the court on Wednesday, also claiming health reasons.

RTE news reported that the deportation order remains until a fuller hearing by ECHR. The lawyers of the Daesh suspect, argued during the trial in the Dublin Court that the man in question, cannot be deported even if he is a threat to Ireland’s national security.

The lawyers, used Article 3 of the European Convention of Human Rights which guarantees absolute protection from torture or inhumane or degrading treatment. Michale Lynn SC, counsel for the suspect, said he had been tortured in his home country because of his opposition to the regime there.

The suspect is married and he has been living in Ireland for some time and secured residency on the basis of the birth of his Irish citizen 15-year-old son. However, for the last number of years his son left Ireland as he decided to live in with his mother. Then the Daesh linked suspect saw his residency permit expire.
