Date of the decision: July 5, 2016
Jurisdiction: Council of Europe – European Court of Human Rights
Subject: Non-admissibility – Article 3 – undocumented migrants – human dignity and core obligations under the ICESCR.
The Court acknowledged the conclusions of the European Committee of Social Rights in CEC and FEANTSA v. the Netherlands but concludes that those findings do not automatically entail a violation of Article 3 (inhuman and degrading treatment) in the context of the ECHR. The non-admissibility decision was based upon the fact that the Dutch government had not remained indifferent and was engaged in a solution.
