A.S. (Morocco) v France


ECHR's case concerned the expulsion of a Moroccan national who had been convicted in France of conspiracy to carry out terrorist acts

According to the press release: The case concerned the expulsion to Morocco of a Moroccan national who had been convicted in France of conspiracy to carry out terrorist acts, and who had previously been deprived of his French nationality for the same reason. The Court noted in particular that Morocco had adopted general measures to prevent risks of treatment contrary to Article 3. The present application was therefore different from the case of M. A. v. France. Furthermore, despite his release, the applicant had failed to provide any evidence that his conditions of detention had exceeded the requisite severity threshold for a violation of Article 3. As regards Article 34, the Court found that the expulsion order had not been served on the applicant until 22 September 2015, the day of his release, more than one month after the decision had been taken, and that he had been immediately taken to the airport for expulsion to Morocco. The applicant had therefore not had sufficient time to request that the Court suspend the decision, even though the French authorities had taken it a long time previously.
