Judgment concerning Poland

Stairs of the main hall of the Human Rights building

In the case of Poklikayew v. Poland the Court held that there had been a violation of procedural safeguards relating to expulsion of aliens.

The case concerned the applicant’s expulsion from Poland on national security grounds without his being fully informed of the reasons.

The Court found that the applicant had received only very general information about the accusations against him, while no specific actions by him which allegedly endangered national security could be seen from the file. The fact that the final decision had been taken by independent judicial authorities at a high level was not enough to counterbalance the limitations on his procedural rights.
