On the 12th and 19th of June 2023, the ECtHR communicated two cases on the Polish-Belarusian border (nos. 12752/2215182/22 and 40833/22). The cases concern eleven foreigners, including minors, attempting to enter Poland in an irregular manner. Allegedly the Polish authorities ignored some applicants’ requests for international protection and pushed them back to the Belarusian side of the border without a formal decision, other decisions were immediately enforced without investigating the individual situations. Furthermore, some applicants were stranded in the border forest area without food, water, and shelter and in harsh weather conditions. The applicants invoke Articles 3 and 13 ECHR, and Article 4 of Protocol No. 4.
