Country Sweden
Status FINAL
Court ECtHR
Relevant Law Article 3, Article 34, Article 35, Article 4 of Protocol 4
Year 1999
Found for Inadmissible

Concerning the removal of a Bosnian national with a Croatian passport from the Swedish border to Croatia. The applicant applied for asylum in Sweden on the basis of fear of being removed to Bosnia where he would face imprisonment for desertion. The applicant also claimed that the Swedish authorities had not properly examined his claims and were collectively expelling him with other Croatian nationals. The Court found both of these claims to be inadmissible on the grounds that they found no real risk of removal from Croatia to Bosnia and that the Swedish authorities gave due regard to the applicant’s individual asylum request, suspending his return due to his mental health difficulties.
