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.

Greek Court Acquits Immigrants who Escaped Appalling Detention Conditions

Published on January 12, 2013        Author: 
In the midst of ever deepening economic woes, Greece is struggling with yet another crisis, this time of a humanitarian character. It is no secret that thousands of immigrants crossing into Greece mainly from Asia and Africa are held in appalling conditions in Greek detention centres. The UN Special Rapporteur on the human rights of migrants visited such centres just before the end of 2012 and faced a bleak situation (the relevant report is still forthcoming, but see the Reuters report here), while the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights found already in January 2011 that returning an asylum seeker to Greece under Dublin II violates Article 3 of the ECHR (see M.S.S. v Belgium and Greece, paras 344 seq, along with a description of the horrible conditions of detention facing immigrants and asylum seekers in Greece).
Today, media in Greece are reporting that the single-judge formation of the Criminal Court of First Instance of Igoumenitsa in northwestern Greece (Μονομελές Πλημμελειοδικείο Ηγουμενίτσας) has returned a remarkable decision (Nr 682/2012) in a prosecution brought against a number of immigrants awaiting expulsion who escaped a local detention centre. Relevant reports in the Greek press can be found here and here, and a redacted version of the rather short decision is published here (all three documents are in Greek).
The facts of the case are as follows: On the night of 30 September to 1 October 2012, fifteen immigrants detained in Thesprotia Police Headquarters (for having illegally entered Greece) wrestled the guards who had entered their cell to remove the garbage and escaped. They were later apprehended and charged with escape under the Greek Criminal Code (Article 173 para 1).
The judge found that the accused had indeed perpetrated the crime of escape. However, he went on to consider the conditions of their detention for a period of up to a month and a half. His description is blood-chilling: the accused had been held in a room with only one chemical toilet, no water, no cleaning or any other form of sanitation, and they all had to sleep in that same room, which did not allow them to even lie down on the floor (it was only 15 sq m, apprx 160 sq ft, and there were no beds). The accused had not been given access to showers or clothing, and many of them suffered from lice or even typhus and other communicable diseases, as a result of the fact that they had not been able to shower or change clothes for months. The accused were limited to the tiny cell 24 hours per day, with no provision for exercise, or even a breath of fresh air.
The judge found such conditions to be in clear violation of Article 3 of the ECHR (prohibition of torture or inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment), while he also went on to state that both the conditions and the duration of detention of the accused, who were awaiting expulsion but had not been charged with any crime, was such as to also violate Articles 3, 8 (right to respect for private and family life), and 13 ECHR (right to an effective remedy). This, the judge said, constituted a state of necessity which precluded the accused’s liability for the crime of escape. The conditions in which they were held put their life and health in extreme danger through no fault of their own; the only way for them to escape that danger was to escape from detention, an act for which they could not be held criminally liable. All fifteen accused were acquitted.
From a criminal law perspective, it is interesting to note that the judge allowed a defence of necessity that does not preclude the wrongfulness of the act, but one which only precludes liability for the wrongful act that has been committed (cf Articles 25 and 32 Greek Criminal Code). This means that the act (the escape) remains wrongful (and thus police could have sought to prevent the escape) but the perpetrators cannot be held criminally liable for trying to save their own lives and health.
More interestingly, the court effectively elevated ECHR protections to criminal law defences: it clearly found that conditions of detention in violation of Article 3 ECHR constitute a situation which puts the life or health of a detained person at risk, so that the latter will not be held criminally liable for escaping. This is to my knowledge novel. It is also in line with the European Court’s mantra that ‘the Convention is intended to guarantee not rights that are theoretical or illusory but rights that are practical and effective’. The Greek judge, in his exceptional decision, seems to have given true effect to the rights guaranteed under the ECHR in a rather spectacular and unprecedented manner.

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)

182.
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: Guardian.co.uk 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 http://www.academictransfer.com? 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.

Situation 2: Yo…

"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 http://www.bailii.org/uk/cases/UKUT/IAC/2013/00046_ukut_iac_sl_ors_azerbaijan_cg.html 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…
