A. (Eritrea) v Staatssekretariat für Migration (SEM)
CH: Eritreans leaving their country illegally no longer face punishment upon return amounting to persecution
(provided by UNHCR): The FAC ruled that Eritreans leaving their country illegally no longer face punishment upon return amounting to persecution. Without specifying this further, the Court held that “other factors” had to come to play to constitute a well-founded fear. The possibility of a recruitment could amount to a violation of Art. 3 and 4 ECHR, but was not relevant under the 1951 Convention.
