6 June 2013

Article 6 of Council Regulation (EC) No 343/2003 ('Dublin II Regulations') for establishing the criteria for determining the Member State responsible for examining an asylum application lodged in one of the Member States by a third-country national should be interpreted as meaning that; where an unaccompanied minor with no member of his family legally present in the territory of a Member State has lodged asylum applications in more than one Member State, the Member State in which that minor is currently present, after having lodged an asylum application there, is to be designated the 'Member State responsible'.

Mohammed v Austria 2283/12 Chamber Judgment [2013] ECHR 516
6 June 2012

A Sudanese asylum seeker successfully relied on Art3/13 of the ECHR to resist the Austrian Government's reliance on an historical transfer order to Hungary, for his asylum claim to be considered there, under the provisions of Council Regulation (EC) No 343/2003. The ECtHR found that following a fresh claim for asylum in Austria, the Austrian Government were obliged to consider whether a further transfer order was appropriated, particularly in light of new evidence regarding detention conditions for asylum seekers, and other failings in processing asylum applications, in Hungary.
