Judgment concerning Sweden

Human Rights building by night

In the case of A.A. v. Sweden the Court held that the applicant’s removal to Libya would not be in violation of either the right to life and/or of the prohibition of inhuman or degrading treatment.

The case concerned the refusal of the applicant’s asylum claim and the order to deport him to Libya. The Court found that the applicant had failed to substantiate that he would be at risk of being killed or subjected to ill-treatment upon returning to Libya, either because of the general security situation or because he had personally been at risk for his alleged affiliation with the Gaddafi regime.
