ECtHR: Factsheet on expulsions and extraditions updated

Friday, October 4, 2013

The Court's factsheet on expulsions and extraditions has been updated in April 2013. It summarises cases of the Court where expulsions and extraditions of foreigners raised issues under Article 3 of the Convention owing to risk of ill-treatment by the state or by third parties, possible damages to the health of the applicant, or membership to political resistance or stigmatised minorities. Dublin transfers are also covered, as well as detention and detention conditions awaiting deportation and possible violations of the right to private life.

The factsheet is available at the Court's website.
