The CALL recognised that there are still deficiencies in the asylum procedure and reception conditions in Greece. However, it found that there are no longer systematic deficiencies that would prevent all Dublin transfers to Greece. With reference to the December 2016 Recommendation of the European Commission on the resumption of transfers to Greece, the CALL found that Dublin transfers to Greece can be carried out subject to a case by case analysis. It also pointed to that Recommendation in that vulnerable asylum applicants, including unaccompanied minors, should not be transferred to Greece.
In the case in question, the CALL noted that the applicant had no particular vulnerability and that the Greek authorities had provided their Belgian counterparts with individualised guarantees with regard to the applicants access to the asylum procedure in Greece and his reception in an official and open reception centre.
