Legally speaking, very many nations grant asylum, and religious persecution is one of the most basic grounds for granting asylum, following the 1951 Refugee Convention. This newspaper article compares asylum statistics in Ireland versus other parts of Europe. The Irish immigration authorities spell out the details for an asylum application. Note that you ...

You should contact an organisation specialised in this area. Here is one for the UK, with specific information on asylum seeking apostates: https://www.ex-muslim.org.uk/2010/09/apostasy-and-asylum-in-the-united-kingdom/ You are asking here on the law stack exchange, but law is only a small part of the equation. Actually getting to a point where you can ...

The tort for this kind of activity is called public disclosure of private facts, and almost every U.S. state recognizes that this tort is invalid under the First Amendment in the absence of a legal duty not to disclose of the type existing between an attorney and client, or a psychotherapist and a patient, or a contractual non-disclosure agreement, that does ...

I know nothing about the law. What I have heard from others (that also know nothing) is that in some countries/states it might be illegal to record audio/video without the recording party being present. The exact location (public/private/bedroom/bathroom) of the recording might also make a difference. (for example) Illegal: Someone hides a running ...

The EU has established rules about member governments subsidising industries. The intention is to ensure that trade in the EU is not distorted by government incentives, so that factories get built in the most efficient location rather than where a government offers the biggest subsidy. This is the mirror image of the rules which prohibit tariffs; governments ...

It is not entrapment because entrapment must be done by officers of the State (police usually). A member of the public inducing another to commit a crime is not entrapment and not a defense to having committed it. Entrapment is a "thing" in Ireland as it is in all common law jurisdictions, however, the specific limits on what police can and cannot do vary ...

Each directives page on eur-lex has a "national transposition" page. For example, directive 2009/65/EC, concerning UCITS, is available at https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/ALL/?uri=celex:32009L0065. There is a navigation box at the top left with several relevant pages: Text Document information Procedure National transposition Summary of ...

Not very nice of the employer, actually quite cowardly. Being not nice and cowardly is not against the law. Being in the EU, and having been employed for ten years, the company will have duties to find a different position in the company at the same pay, and only when that fails, the employee can be laid off and will have a reasonable amount of notice, ...

This is an incomplete answer, but regardless of the state of statutory law in the U.K. and Ireland, most credit card providers, as part of their merchant agreements authorizing a merchant to accept credit card payments, prohibit merchants who accept credit cards from offering a lower price for cash payment than for a purchase using a credit card, despite the ...

I would recommend talking to an adult person in HR. I'm quite sure they will notice that what your manager wants to do is more than dodgy, and doing something dodgy may be in the interest of your manager, but not in the interest of the company. The best thing is to go to HR, acting as if a mistake has been made, and point out to them what your start date ...

I know it's not a huge amount of money, but I'm not currently in a position to pay it. Is it still legal to send invoices this long from the past? Yes, it is legal. And the surveyor is still within the statute of limitations to sue you for breach of contract. Beyond the purely legislative aspect, personally I would encourage you to pay the surveyor ...

GDPR defines the responsibility of Companies to ensure that Personal Data in their possession is maintained Secure ensuring Confidentiality and Privacy towards the Data Subjects to whom it pertains.

Good fences make good neighbors :) https://www.poets.org/poetsorg/poem/mending-wall But seriously, hedges were planted to form property boundaries between counties, church lands, private lands, communal grazing lands, etc. A tall, thick hedge obviously and clearly marks a boundary, stops grazing animals from straying, and provides privacy between farms. ...

The answer seems fairly simple. ANY item not belonging in the room and NOT found in a waste receptacle must be brought to management and logged. i.e. if the hotel guest threw a crumpled scrap of food wrapper at the bin and missed, that item must be presented to management and logged. Then, it's management's decision to toss it. I imagine that the twelfth ...

If no clear cut answer to what is considered "Lost Property" there is a clear case of ambiguity in what at least the drafter of this considers a contract. (Whether this is is another question.) What I'm left wondering is what happens if you see a cash cheque for a million dollars in the waste basket... Recycle or Lost Property? As a general rule of thumb ...

Does this count as theft? Yes - it is called "theft by finding" Can the man who owns the car be identified by registration number? Yes - registration numbers would be worthless otherwise. This is not generally available to the general public but police and motor vehicle registration authorities can certainly do this. In most common law jurisdictions you ...

CBD most definitely is a drug and a chemical derived from marijuana. It may be a legal medicinal drug under the laws of the UK and Ireland (two completely separate sovereign countries by the way) which just set their respective policies on the subject earlier this year, but that doesn't mean that it isn't a drug, and like many drugs it will require a ...

There is no risk to getting an Irish passport. If at some point in the future they did decide to introduce conscription or tried to apply taxes to you (extremely unlikely) you could simply destroy it and renounce any Irish citizenship. The law on this subject is well developed due to the open Irish border and many people who already have dual citizenship. ...

Yes convictions exist, at least in the USA. This answer is with respect to the USA, not Ireland or the EU. I seem to recall in the late 1990s a Vice President for an early search engine company that no longer exists tried visiting an online underage sex-chat friend in person on Santa Monica Pier. He encountered a policewoman. I recalled something about ...

You can try the European Small Claims Procedure. The European Small Claims Procedure is available to litigants as an alternative to the procedures existing under the laws of the Member States. A judgment given in the European Small Claims Procedure is recognized and enforceable in another Member State without the need for a declaration of enforceability ...

Yes, it’s a treaty It’s a treaty between the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland which both countries have given force to in domestic law. It is also an agreement between eight Northern Irish political parties/groups.

According to this pamphlet (see page 5), no, you do not need to be a citizen of the EU country. What are the conditions relating to me personally? You do not need to be a national of one of the States bound by the Convention. The violation you are complaining of must simply have been committed by one of those States against a person within its ...

Yes. Sue under Dutch law, and then apply to the Irish courts to enforce the judgement of the Dutch court. This will be pretty much rubber stamped.

Since you paid with a credit card you should simple demand a "chargeback" (a.k.a. "dispute") of their original charge. Provide your argument and evidence to your credit card issuer. The burden then falls on the seller to establish that they are entitled to the money charged.
