MB.A. (Bangladesh) vs French Office for the Protection of Refugees and Stateless Persons (OFPRA) [Decision of 26/06/2017]
According to the national contribution to the EMN Annual Report on Migration and Asylum 2019:
The Council of State upheld the CNDA’s decision and rejected OFPRA’s appeal on the grounds that the Court’s sovereign assessment on the applicant’s inadequate understanding and mastery of the English language could not be denatured. In this case, the Office’s inadmissibility decision on the grounds of late submission was overturned by the Court, which argued that the applicant, a national of Bangladesh, had received no effective linguistic assistance when being informed in English and French of his rights in custody
