ECtHR – Communicated case against Belgium
On 26 April 2018, the ECtHR communicated case Nahhas and others v. Belgium (application no. 3599/18), which concerns a Syrian family who applied for a humanitarian visa at the Belgian consulate in Beirut. This application was rejected by the Belgian Aliens Office. On appeal, the Council for Alien Law Litigation (CALL) suspended this decision on an emergency basis, considering that the political and security situation in Aleppo was such that the applicants were at risk of violation of Article 3 ECHR. Despite this ruling, the visa request was rejected once again. The applicants took subsequent judicial actions, without success.
