GREECE: FGM INTERNATIONAL PROTECTION: DECISION


"The Administrative Court of Appeals has temporarily suspended the decision of return of a Kenyan woman along with her three minor children in her homeland, based on the highly liked possibility of suffering irreparable harm, "consisting in exposure to risk their physical integrity"...

The Administrative Court of Appeals stated that their return to Kenya contains the highly liked possibility of suffering irreparable harm, “consisting in exposure to risk their physical integrity”, thus temporarily suspended the decision of their return. Additionally, the Court ordered the state authorities to refrain from any action which would result in "forced return" of them back to their homeland.

Finally, the Court ordered the "particular asylum seeker's card" to be returned if it had been removed- and to be renewed, if it had been expired."
