France: Constitutional Council rules that short timeframe to challenge expulsion while detained violates right to an effective remedy

On 1 June 2018, the French Constitutional Council ruled on a request for a priority ruling on constitutionality (question prioritaire de constitutionnalitélodged by the Observatoire international des prisons, the Cimade and Gisti. The organisations challenged the legislative provisions that establish a timeframe of 48 hours to challenge an order to leave the French territory (OQTF) for those who are detained, and that requires that appeal to be examined by a judge in a period of 72 hours.

The Constitutional Council concurred with the arguments set forth by the organisations and ruled that the timeframe is particularly short and does not conciliate the right to an effective remedy with the objective to execute the order to leave the territory while avoiding long periods of detention pending the outcome of the appeal.
