N.A. – No. 2000288 and 2000289

Country France
Status FINAL
Court Administrative Tribunal of Nice
Relevant Law
Year 2020
Found for Applicant

The applicant, Nigerian national, submitted an application for asylum in France. His application was examined on 20 January 2020 by the competent authorities. The Court stated that the applicant should have benefitted, in accordance with the Code on the Entry and Residence of Foreigners and the Right of Asylum, from the right to remain on French territory until the end of the procedure for examining his asylum application. Under these conditions, the refusal to allow N.A. to enter France and his surrender to the Italian authorities created an emergency situation for him and in itself constituted a serious and manifestly illegal infringement of the fundamental freedom that constitutes the right of asylum.
