AND UPON noting and concluding that the Applicant has raised a serious issue, at least as regards the basis for the Officer’s state protection findings and that, although the Applicant may have mobility rights within the European Union, she is being returned to the Czech Republic with two extremely young children to face the threats to her life and health which the Officer did not question had occurred to her in the past and which the Officer acknowledged that Roma people face, so that the Applicant has also satisfied the irreparable harm and balance of convenience aspects of the Toth test;

THIS COURT ORDERS that the motion for a stay is granted until such time as the underlying leave and judicial review application has been dealt with by the Court.
