Hoe kan je de IND overtuigen een visumzaak aan te houden? (Kant en klare brief)

Mr Fouad Ben Saddek advocaat te Rotterdam deed mij een geanonimiseerde beslissing toekomen in een zaak van hem waarin de IND stelde dat voor de pandemiesituatie geen aanhoudingsbeleid is binnen de Visumcode. Dat de Visumcode kort cyclisch is en dat niet zonder meer kan worden uitgegaan van ongewijzigde omstandigheden in de situatie van aanvrager. Voorts zou er geen grondslag zijn voor termijnverlenging voor onderzoek en dergelijke. Dit alles maakte dat zijn verzoek om aanhouding werd afgewezen.

Ik heb een artikel geschreven van 10 pagina's in Word waar ik op deze punten inga. Wellicht scheelt dat u een berg werk.

Als je ziet hoe Engelse rechters falende vreemdelingenrecht advocaten aanpakken is Deken Loorbach een zacht ei

"Today there are two cases before this court which we will refer to by the initials "B" and "J". As will become apparent when we set out the facts, there were, in essence, two explanations for what had happened in these cases. The first explanation is that the lawyers concerned were competent in the area of immigration law, but put forward applications to the court which, being competent practitioners, they must have appreciated were applications supported by arguments that were nonsensical. The other explanation was that those lawyers putting forward these applications were not competent in the area of the law and put forward applications in ignorance of the law that showed the lawyers were incompetent. As a result of the hearing before us, it is clear that both cases fall within the second category, in that arguments that were nonsensical were put forward to the court by lawyers who did not have the degree of competence that is essential to practice in immigration law.
It is important in cases involving asylum and immigration, where the court offers a very generous service, both out of hours and in the speed of its decision making, that lawyers put at the forefront of their consideration two things: one, only undertake cases where they have a proper knowledge of the law to be able to put forward competent arguments and, secondly, to bear in mind always the paramount duty to the court which I have just summarised. In these two cases, it seems clear to me, on what has been said, that the duty to the court was overlooked but, more seriously, there was a lack of professional competence. Apologies have been made by counsel and solicitors who acted in the case of B. In the case of J, the solicitor-advocate who made the application, and the partner of the firm which had recently employed him, also put forward an apology to the court. I will not now name any of the solicitors or advocates concerned, but I intend briefly to set out the facts as illustrative of what happened in these cases, which must never happen again, and of the importance in this field of law of the observance of the duties to which I have referred.
 Counsel who put forward this argument, for his name appears upon the document, has apologised for what has happened. No counsel knowing anything about this area of the law could put forward such an argument. It is of course right that a person can put forward a claim which he is asked to do by the client, but it is a plain breach of duty to do so in advancing arguments to the court that are manifestly nonsensical and display an obvious ignorance of the law. As I observed at the outset, there are only two explanations for such conduct conceivable: either it was conduct that was deliberate and therefore in gross breach of duty because the lawyer knew what the law was; or the lawyer exhibited a degree of manifest incompetence. It was the latter in this case.
In the light of the apologies that have been given, and in the light of the explanations tendered, and since this is the first occasion on which this court has had to deal with reiterating the duties of advocates and lawyers, this court will, if my Lord agrees, not take any action in referring the solicitors firms, the solicitor advocate or counsel to the relevant regulatory authorities. This court wishes to make quite clear for the future that, if arguments or advocations of this kind are put forward, the court will act. This is an area of the law where those who are not competent to practice must not practice, and where those who are competent to practice must practice with their duty to the court at the forefront of their mind.

 More judicial warnings to immigration lawyers

" (....)
The other of the two reported cases, Awuku (No 2), seems to have been the outcome of a new matter list of potential offending immigration lawyers, collectively hauled down to court to explain themselves before the judges in some sort of Star Chamber. I heard that in one case the barrister’s brief had omitted a page from a document to which, naturally, the barrister made no reference. The barrister was let off the hook. This will be little consolation to someone who loses a day’s work and probably a bucket load of sweat wondering if one’s professional career will be in tatters. Will such a person or their colleagues be reluctant to get involved in injunction applications in future? Is this perhaps part of the point of this exercise? Intimidating lawyers into stopping making these pesky applications?
We immigration lawyers are no doubt annoying. So too, to many in our society, are immigrants. Judges are irked that after stellar careers in profitable and intellectually stimulating areas of law they are reduced to deciding mere immigration cases, sometimes of highly questionable merit, as if they were the lowest rung of the tribunal judiciary. This naming and shaming of lawyers is unprecedented, though.
Representing unpopular minorities has never been easy. Looking through some of the litigation around the Birmingham Six there is no criticism of the lawyers despite findings of abuse of process: see McIlkenny v. Chief Constable [1980] 1 Q.B. 283, infamous for the ‘appalling vista’ quote from Lord Denning as he was by then, and Hunter v Chief Constable [1982] AC 529. Those claims were no doubt considered to be ‘not properly arguable’ but the lawyers weren’t hauled over the coals for making the arguments.
Sir John Thomas has embarked on a very dangerous course. Will SIAC lawyers be next? Criminal defence lawyers for terrorist suspects? If it is true there is a new ‘defaulting immigration lawyer list’ at the Royal Courts of Justice, I for one have a family to feed and may decide to stop being available for out of hours work like injunctions. I’ve done three injunction applications in the last few weeks I can think of, two of which succeeded. If I need to start worrying about being hauled down to court for doing my job then I may well stop."

Voor de duidelijkheid: In Engeland bereiden sollicitors zaken voor zoals wij hier advocaten hebben en barristers (councel) gaan hem op zitting bepleiten (zoals je vroeger hier procureurs had).

Waar blijven de gespecialiseerde advocaten die juist clienten op juiste wijze bij durven staan die vluchten cq. zijn gevlucht voor excessen in agressie en terreur veroorzaakt door vluchtelingen/migranten?
Wie durft deze specifieke problematieken te erkennen?
Ik ken nl. geen enkele advocaat die de zgn. 'witte vlucht' erkent.
Ik vroeg het dhr. Bolkestein na zijn Elsevier/Schoo-lezing in 2011, maar hij kende geen enkele oplossing voor dit groeiende probleem.

Marokkaanse clienten? Dan is dit een leuk boek om te lezen en hebben jullie wat te praten over Marokkaanse geschiedenis

In het Nederlands en in het originele Engels verkrijgbaar
Bookreview: "The tenth gift" A woman is abducted to become a slave in Morocco in the 16th century. In the 20th century a descendant retraces her story. A year ago I read a book written by a British lady who explained she had written a prior novel about white slavery in Morocco and when she was doing research in Morocco she fell in love with a Moroccan guy. When I saw that this earlier novel was for sale I bought it. Reading I discovered that the story started in Mousehole in Cornwall. Mousehole the place one of my Facebook lived. So I mailed her and Sue said: "I know. I know the lady and her Moroccan husband." Talking of living in a small world.

That small world is also a theme in the book itself. The leading lady is given a book by her boyfriend on the evening of him breaking up with her. Reading is she discovers notes in it written in the 17th century by a young woman from Cornwall. It turns o…

Britse rechter over de vraag of bij herhaalde aanvraag opvang moet worden geboden (uitspraak)

No fair-minded person would be unsympathetic to the practical difficulties faced by the hard-pressed officials who have to deal with a large number of “fresh” asylum applications at the same time as applications for section 4 support. All judges of the Administrative Court will themselves have seen purported “fresh” submissions which are no such thing and submissions which, in their presentation, are voluminous and unfocused. I have certainly seen submissions of that nature in my judicial capacity and that is why the suggestion that only about 15% of such submissions ultimately are found to be true “fresh” submissions within Rule 353 comes as no real surprise. Equally, it would be wrong not to acknowledge that the formulation of guidance to case owners dealing with such matters must undoubtedly be a difficult task. Furthermore, the resources available to deal with these matters doubtless face the same constraints that every other publicly-funded task faces at present.


Het EVRM is er niet alleen voor immigranten. Voor sommige onderdanen de enige weg om recht te halen

“UK must not think only of itself”: Massacre families urge UK not to leave ECHR – Alice Donald Photo credit: The Conservative Party’s proposals to introduce a British Bill of Rights and Responsibilities that would weaken the UK’s obligations under the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) – and the legal chaos that would ensue if it was ever enacted – have been hotly debated. The proposal makes clear that if the Council of Europe was to reject the UK’s unilateral move, as it would be bound to, the UK ‘would be left with no alternative but to withdraw’ from the Convention.
The policy is highly isolationist. The brief section on the ‘international implications’ of the plan does not pause to consider the impact of withdrawal on the other 46 states on the Council of Europe or the Convention system as a whole. Nor does it address the implications for the UK’s ability to promote human rights and the rule of law in countries with significantly worse human righ…

Searchyear permits and COVID-19 / Corona -- Zoekjaar en Corona

A group of people who are in The Netherlands with a Zoekjaar-residence permit (a permit that allows you a year in The Netherlands while you look for a job there) are lobbying for an extension of their permit now exceptional circumstances with Corona and a semi-lockdown are making it very difficult for them to find that job.

But what are the legal remedies when you cannot fly back home but overstaying might see you in trouble with your insurances and maybe a mark on your immigrational future?

Situation 1: Your Zoekjaar permit is still valid for over 3 months

Use your time to apply for jobs. Are you familiar with In The Netherlands a Phd position is a paid job and comes with a residence permit. Also read up on doing an extra Master as also studying comes with a permit and while you study you can go and look for a Kennismigranten or Research job as well.
In the meantime lobby at parliament and talk with journalists but focus on job-hunting.

"Morocco, maybe" - leuk boek voor mensen met veel Marokkaanse clienten of wie er zelf zijn geweest

For those who ever visited Morocco and did the "Royal cities"- tour around the country this book is a feast of recognition as we say in Dutch. But the book offers so much more.

Sara is a young corporate attorney who ruthlessly goes for the kill to further her career. In this case to stop an archaeological dig in Afghanistan so her client a Chinese mining corporation can start mining.

But when she attends a charity function with her fiancé Nathan it is clear that her life is very "empty". She is the only one who takes the time to go and look at the artwork from Afghanistan, the rest is discussing golf. Her fiancé does not bother to have a look even when Sara used to study Art and he must know it is something that hugely interests her. There is only one other person interested in the art, a handsome man. He advises her to bid on the trips in the auction and that is what she tells her fiancé Nathan to do. To be flabbergasted that the guy she chatted with at the art e…

Britse uitspraak over Azeri alleenstaande moeder met kind van gemengd ras (uitspraak met landeninfo))

Het gaat hier om een zaak waarbij een Christelijke Azeri dame met een moeder die na tweede huwelijk moslim is geworden naar de Caribbean gaat en daar zwanger wordt van een zwarte meneer. Ze krijgt een koffiekleurig kindje en vraagt in Engeland asiel aan omdat ze volgens haarzelf zo problemen in Azerbeidzjan zal krijgen.

Deze uitspraak geeft veel achtergrond informatie over Azerbeidzjan.

De rechtbank komt tot de volgende comclusie:

108. Having considered all the evidence before us we conclude: 1.Azerbaijan is a country with high levels of corruption and there is clear evidence that political dissent is not tolerated. 2.There is nothing to indicate that the State would in any way penalise unmarried mothers (approximately 10% of mothers) or those who have mixed race children. There are in place some support mechanisms for single parents. 3.In order to access benefits, accommodation or work a residence pe…

Duitsland stopt met het leggen van Dublinclaims voor Syrische asielzoekers die via een ander EU-land zijn ingereisd

Dublin-Prüfung für syrische Flüchtlinge ausgesetzt 25.08.2015 - 18:25 Uhr
Berlin/Brüssel (dpa) - Deutschland will syrische Asylbewerber nicht mehr in andere EU-Länder zurückschicken, über die sie in die Europäische Union eingereist sind. Eine neue Regelung im Bundesamt für Migration und Flüchtlinge (BAMF) sieht vor, dass das Dublin-Verfahren für Syrer ausgesetzt wird. Normalerweise wird bei jedem Asylbewerber zwingend geprüft, ob er zuerst in einem anderen Land europäischen Boden betreten hat. Ist dem so, muss der Betroffene eigentlich dorthin zurück. Darauf wird bei Syrern nun offiziell verzichtet. Es gelten aber ohnehin schon seit Monaten gelockerte Vorgaben für Flüchtlinge aus dem Krisenstaat. Die sogenannte Dublin-Verordnung sieht vor, dass derjenige Mitgliedstaat für ein Asylverfahren zuständig ist, in dem ein Asylbewerber erstmals europäischen Boden betritt. Die Prüfung ist aber aufwendig. Auch der Prozess der Rücküberstellung eines Flüchtlings an…

Een boek wat het belang van mensenrechten uitlegt in een roman. Halbe Zijlstra lees je mee?

Het was een beetje hectisch de laatste tijd vandaar dat u niet zoveel nieuws hier zag. Ik was net voor mijn studenten op aan het schrijven wat Habeas Corpus was toen de schrijver van deze roman me een exemplaar gaf. Dit is "gewoon" een roman maar het belang van de rem die mensenrechten hebben op een doorschietende overheid kan niet beter worden uitgelegd. Aanrader!

As our then crown prince married a daughter from a minister during the Argentinian junta days I think we in The Netherlands know a lot more about that dark episode than for instance people from Poland. She became a respected and very popular queen by the way. The sins of the fathers should not be blamed on the children and at least dad was not welcome at the wedding.

The day before I started to read the book I got as a present from the writer, I met someone who was a refugee from Syria. A nice hardworking young man who told me he had saved up during 10 years working in the Emirates, had come back home, bought a ho…
