Ballinasloe woman may get deported husband back home for Christmas

kleber-medeirosThere are reports today that a deportation order lodged against Brazilian man Kleber Medeiros has been rescinded.

His deportation became the subject of national attention earlier this year after his wife Harriet began a campaign to highlight their case.

Harriet Bruce married Kleber Medeiros in Ballinasloe in December last year but he was deported to Sao Paula in July of this year after an unfounded claim that their marriage was a “sham”.


Harriet visited the Dial last month to lobby more politicians on the issue and she said at the time she was happy the case was finally in the hands of the Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald.

While news that the deportation order being revoked hasn’t been officially confirmed as yet, it would appear that Keller Medeiros could well be back home in Ireland to celebrate Christmas with his wife.
