Netherlands / District Court The Hague / 200.063.511/01 Refusal to grant asylum

Key facts of the case:

A mother and her two children have been denied the refugee status, and have to leave the Netherlands. Since 2009 they have been living in the limiting freedom location Ter Apel. Because the mother would not cooperate with her deportation to Angola she, and her children, had to leave the limiting freedom location by 1 April 2010. This would come down to mother and children being homeless.

The Court of Appeal:

Prohibits the State to remove the family from the restricted freedom location.

Orders the State to keep providing shelter and financial support for the under aged children
