Communicated case against France

Friday, December 20, 2019

E. H. v France (Application No. 39126/18): The case concerns a Moroccan national who was placed in a holding area at Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport in 2018. The applicant was later moved to an administrative detention centre and their request for international protection was rejected as manifestly unfounded. The applicant complains that his expulsion to Morocco exposed him to a risk of ill treatment contrary to Article 3 ECHR. He also complains under Article 3 and 13 ECHR that there existed no effective remedy to assert his asylum claim.
