X v. Germany (application no. 54646/17), European Court of Human Rights, 2017

Case law
European Court of Human Rights

In its decision in the case of X v. Germany (application no. 54646/17) the European Court of Human Rights has unanimously declared the application inadmissible. The decision is final.

Like the domestic courts, the European Court concluded that there were no substantial grounds for believing that the applicant, if deported to Moscow, would be exposed to a real risk of being subjected to treatment contrary to Article 3 (prohibition of torture and of inhuman or degrading treatment) of the European Convention on Human Rights as he had no connection with the conflicts in the Northern Caucasus. In particular, the Court saw no reason to depart from the domestic courts’ decisions, which had carefully weighed all the evidence and had made a comprehensive assessment of the applicant’s case.
