Description of the fake LIE
Ukrainians in Ireland receive extradition notices because they are subject to mobilization in Ukraine. This news, with a photocopy of a letter from the Irish Ministry of Justice, is spread by anonymous accounts and some Internet users.
The Ministry of Justice of Ireland stressed that it had never sent such letters to citizens of Ukraine. A ministry spokesman said that “anyone who is unsure of the authenticity of any correspondence sent allegedly by the Ministry of Justice can contact the department at 1800-221227.”
At the same time, the fact that the “letter” is forged is indicated by errors in the text, as well as the inconsistency of its content with the provisions of local legislation, StopFake investigators note.
“The ‘letter’ indicates the name of the country as the ‘Republic of Ireland,’ which is the ‘Description of the State.’ The name ‘Republic of Ireland’ is used only in cases where it is necessary to eliminate the ambiguity between the state and the island of Ireland,” the experts note.
In international treaties and other legal documents, in diplomatic relations, the official name of the country, enshrined in the Constitution, is Ireland.
