M.A.M (Somalia), K.N. & Ors (Uzbekistan) and I.K. (Georgia) vs The Minister for Justice and Equality & Ors.

In M.A.M. (Somalia) & Ors. v. Minister for Justice and Equality (No. 1) [2018] IEHC 113, the Court refused these three applications for relief by way of judicial review (the case can be found in https://caselaw.easo.europa.eu/pages/viewcaselaw.aspx?CaseLawID=401). In this judgment, the Court dealt with the costs of that first judgment. The Court noted a previous comment by the Court that there was no need to interpret the Qualification Directive (Directive 2004/83/EC of 29 April 2004 on minimum standards for the qualification and status of third country nationals or stateless persons as refugees or as persons who otherwise need international protection and the content of the protection granted) as being more extensive than the Geneva Convention was to be put into the context. The comment meant was that there was no reason to interpret the qualification directive as being more extensive than the Geneva Convention unless the text otherwise clearly required, which it does not do here.
