A. (Eritrea) vs Staatssekretariat für Migration (SEM)

(Abstract provided by UNHCR) Eritrean persons who have not yet been called for National Service, or are exempted from National Service or who have been released from National Service, are no longer being recognized as refugees. In such cases, they do not face punishment and forced conscription upon return and hence their removal is lawful. Eritreans who have not yet served the National Service and who were not exempted from it, particularly those who have left the country before reaching the age of 18, do most probably risk detention and forced conscription upon return – a scenario which was not relevant in the present case.
