Pour & Ors v SSHD [2016] EWHC 401 (Admin) (1 March 2016)

These cases were heard as test cases on challenges to return to Cyprus under the Dublin Regulations. Claire was led by Stephen Knafler QC. The Claimants were Iranian asylum-seekers who challenged their return to Cyprus on the grounds that there was a real risk they would be detained unlawfully in breach of Article 5 ECHR and in poor conditions in breach of Article 3 ECHR, and there was a real risk of refoulement from Cyprus, as a result of the asylum procedure that failed to guarantee an effective remedy and the right to asylum.
