European Court of Human Rights Ordered Not To Deport A Tamil Asylum-Seeker To Sri Lanka

The European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) has invoked on Thursday article 39 of its Rules indicating an interim measure in a case involving the expulsion of a Tamil from France. The request for an interim measure means that Paris will have to refrain from expelling the asylum-seeker until the judgment becomes final or until further order.

The asylum-seeker had medical documentation confirming signs of torture.

The judgment is available here
