M.G. (Afghanistan) vs OFPRA (Office Français de Protection des Réfugiés et Apatrides)

Ruling after the cancellation of its decision by the Council of State, the CNDA rehearsed the case of an Afghan national of Hazara origin from the province of Ghazni who belonged to the Afghan local police. Assessing on the decision of the OFPRA to withdraw the status of refugee for fraud, the court considered that if the proven fraud affected the chronology of the facts presented by the interested party, it did not undermine the credibility of his statements as to the circumstances of his departure from Afghanistan and the merits of his fears of persecution by the Taliban, which stem from his ethnic origin and his confessional affiliation, as well as the political views attributed to him.
