Key facts of the case:

The applicant had left Mali and applied for refugee and humanitarian status in Bulgaria. The State Agency for Refugees (SAR) (Държавна агенция за бежанците, ДАБ) denied his request on the grounds that he had not fulfilled the necessary conditions for obtaining refugee or humanitarian status. The Sofia Administrative Court (Софийски административен съд) upheld this decision. The applicant then filed a cassation appeal to the Supreme Administrative Court.
