Order of the Court of Catania, I Civil Section, 12 January 2016

The Court of Catania upheld the recourse brought by a Senegal national against an order of delayed return in his country of origin issued against him because the claimant had received no information about his right to apply for international protection. That decision was in violation of Article 27 of the Italian Constitution, as well as the EU relevant legislation, and the ECHR as interpreted by the ECHR Court in, among others, its decision of 2012 on the Hirsi Jamaa case.
