European Court for Human Rights in Strasbourg made two judgements today in case of Al Hamdani, and case of Al Husin against Bosnia and Herzegovina. The judgements will become final if during next three months none of these parties file a request for their review.


In case of Syrian citizen Imad Al Husin, known as Abu Hamza, European Court for Human Rights in Strasbourg determined that under current circumstances there are no conditions for his deportation to Syria, due to the potential threat that he would be subjected to torture and inhumane treatment.

It is also expected the instituting procedure for finding third , safe country where this Syrian citizen could be deported, who is declared a threat for national security of B&H.




In case of Fadhil Al Hamdani, whom the security structure of B&H declared a threat for national security of our country, it is established that there are no impediments for his deportation to Iraq.His claims about possible exposure to inhumane treatment are dismissed as unfounded, and it is referred the fact that in postwar period he resided two times in the region of that country, and that he obtained duly Iraqi passport in 2007 in Vienna.


European Court for Human Rights determined the violation of Convention on Human Rights in period from their placement under surveillance at Immigration Centre until making decision on their expulsion.


It is established lack of coordination of the Law on Movement and Stay of Aliens in B&H with Convention on Human Rights by this, because the above mentioned law offers possibility to Service for Foreigners' Affairs that even prior of making decison on expulsion, the measure of placing under surveillance is assigned to foreign citizen, which is not pursuant to Convention on Human Rights.
