Key facts of the case:

The family (father – case number D19 432916, mother – case number D19 432917) and the two minor children (case numbers D19 432918 and D19 432919) entered Austria illegally in October 2011. They all applied for asylum and were dealt with in a family procedure (Familienverfahren). Only the father presented reasons for his flight, the family members did not provide their own reasons for leaving their country of origin. He stated that he supported the “fighters” in Chechnya by providing food and clothing and that he was persecuted there.

These decisions are analogue to the decision taken in D19 323917-1/2012/2E (judgment is provided in the link).
