Denmark Facing ECHR Action Over Efforts to Send Syrian Refugees Home

In July 2020, Danish Integration Minister Mattias Tesfaye asked the country’s Immigration Service to review residence permits for hundreds of Syrian refugees, in a move based on the idea that the war in Syria is effectively over and they don’t need protection.

Denmark’s current attempts to return scores of Syrians to Damascus may prompt other countries to follow suit, lawyers from the group Guernica 37 has warned.

The organisation added that they are preparing a lawsuit against the Danish government, which will be submitted to the European Сourt of Human Rights (ECHR).

Guernica 37 is a London-based international justice chamber that deals with pro-bono and affordable assistance related to transnational legal and human rights cases.
