Interim measure granted concerning France - ECHR
Interim measure granted concerning France
The Court has decided to grant an interim measure in the case of I.A. v. France, accepting the request of the applicant, a Russian national of Chechen origin, to suspend his expulsion to Russia.
The Court took its decision in respect of the applicant’s complaints concerning right to life and prohibition of torture and inhuman or degrading treatment without prejudging the merits of the case. It decided, in the particular circumstances of the case – especially considering the Russian authorities’ request for his extradition – that an imminent risk of irreparable harm could not be ruled out at this stage of the proceedings in the event of the applicant’s removal to Russia.
