X. and X. (Afghanistan) vs General Commissioner for Refugees and Stateless persons (Commissaire général aux réfugiés et aux apatrides)
Case related the credibility assessment base on documents issued by Afghan authorities and the declarations made by two Afghan brothers who applied for asylum in Belgium when they were minors.
Based on country of origin information and the vulnerability of the applicants given their young age, the Court ruled that the brothers would not have access to real and durable protection if returned to Afghanistan. Therefore, they had a well-established fear of being persecuted and should be granted refugee status. The Court annuled previous decisions and granted them refugee status.
