On 24 November 2017, the European Court of Human Rights communicated case A.E. and T.B. v. Italy (application no. 18911/17 and two others), which concerns four Sudanese nationals who were arrested in Ventimiglia and then transferred to the Taranto hotspot. They were subsequently transferred to Turin in order to be boarded on a flight directed to Sudan. However, the applicants eventually remained in Italy and were granted refugee status. They complain under Articles 3, 5, 8 and 13 ECHR with regard to the lawfulness of their detention, their treatment during their arrest, transport and detention, and the lack of domestic effective remedy for their complaints.
On 22 November 2017, the ECtHR communicated case Nagpal and Madan v. the Netherlands(application no. 68377/17), which concerns a Sikh family with two minor children from Kabul, whose asylum application was rejected by the Netherlands.
