On the 6th of March 2023, the ECtHR published application no 2633/23. The case concerns an Afghan national who was granted international protection in Greece as a minor and subsequently had to leave the provided accommodation which caused homelessness. The lack of support by the authorities forced him to beg for food and water and as a result he became a victim of violence. The applicant moved to Switzerland where his asylum application was rejected and return to Greece was ordered.
The applicant argues that his return would constitute a violation of Article 3 ECHR as he experienced traumatic events in Greece causing psychological problems and a risk of suicide. Furthermore, he is unlikely to have access to accommodation, medical care, work or assistance upon return to Greece.
