K v Bundesasylamt: Case C-245/11;   [2012] WLR (D)  309

“On the proper construction of article 15(2) of Council Regulation (EC) No 343/2003 of 18 February 2003 (establishing the criteria and mechanisms for determining the member state responsible for examining an asylum application lodged in one of the member states by a third country national), a member state which was not responsible for examining an application for asylum pursuant to the criteria laid down in Chapter III of the Regulation became so responsible where there were humanitarian grounds for the application. In those circumstances, it was for the member state which had become the responsible member state to assume the obligations which went along with that responsibility and inform the member state previously responsible.”
