Key facts of the case:

An exclusion order was imposed on the applicant, a Turkish citizen, because of certain criminal convictions. His appeal was dismissed by the Tyrol Public Security Authority (Sicherheitsdirektion). Before the Supreme Administrative Court the applicant argued that the Public Security Authority had not been the competent authority, as appeals against return decisions had to be decided by the Independent Administrative Tribunal (Unabhängiger Verwaltungssenat).
