Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights hears case on Spain’s longstanding push-back practice at the border with Morocco
Today, the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) heard again the key case on unlawful push-backs at the Spanish-Moroccan border. In October 2017, the ECtHR ruled that Spain’s practice of automatic expulsions violate the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). The judgment followed complaints against Spain from N.D. and N.T. from Mali and the Ivory Coast who are seeking to enforce their fundamental right to have rights.
In August 2014, N.D. and N.T. were directly pushed back to Morocco after they had crossed the border fence structure at Melilla. They were denied access to any legal procedures or protection. On the initiative and with the expertise of ECCHR, they submitted individual complaints to the ECtHR in February 2015. They are represented by ECCHR partner lawyers Carsten Gericke (Hamburg) and Gonzalo Boye (Madrid).

In other proceedings before the Court in Strasbourg, ECCHR is supporting refugees from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan in their complaints against brutal push-backs near the Idomeni camp on the Macedonian-Greek border.
