Abdullahi v Bundesasylamt (Case C-394/12); [2013] WLR (D) 481

‘According to article 19(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 (OJ 2003 L50, p 1)), in circumstances where a member state had agreed to take charge of an applicant for asylum on the basis of the criterion laid down in article 10(1) of the Regulation—namely, as the member state of the first entry of the applicant for asylum into the European Union—the only way in which the applicant could call into question the choice of that criterion was by pleading systemic deficiencies in the asylum procedure and in the conditions for the reception of applicants for asylum in that member state, which provided substantial grounds for believing that the applicant for asylum would face a real risk of being subjected to inhuman or degrading treatment within the meaning of article 4 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union.’
