The Ministry of internal Affairs of great Britain illegally expelled a minor asylum seeker. Such a ruling made by the High court, writes The Independent.
Afghan boy, whose name was not called, lived in British territory along with his uncle and other relatives. In April 2017 at the age of 17, he was deported to Germany, where filed. However, this was in violation of EU law, according to which the application for a minor asylum should be processed in the country where they have relatives.
As noted, the young man showed authorities the documents confirming his age. Relatives are also able to provide additional evidence, but it didn’t help.
In addition, it appeared that the young man was notified of the expulsion only one working day. By law it had to be done at least five days. Ultimately, the court ruled that the Ministry should organize his return to the country, though officials pointed out that the exiled Afghan now is not in the British jurisdiction.
Specifies that when filing a petition, the young man said that he was a victim of torture at home, as a result he had serious mental health problems. According to the lawyers, their client is “extremely vulnerable” people, and illegal deportation to Germany, along with the separation from family has an extremely negative effect on him. Advocates had hoped that after this case, “the Ministry of the interior will begin to realize that their administrative errors have serious consequences.”
In late November it was reported that the authorities of the German Federal state of Hesse will return to the country of a Russian citizen deported because of a procedural error.
