Asylum: Asylum seekers have their right to adequate legal protection

The appeal administrative council of Court of BIH has adopted the request for reconsideration of the court decision submitted by Association “ Vasa prava BiH” and has revoked the judgment of the State Court No S1 3 U 001818 10 U taking a clear stance regarding questions of asylum seeker and their right to adequate legal protection.

Namely year long practice has been that in Administrative proceedings all written correspondence is delivered in the official languages of BiH directly to asylum seekers, even then when the asylum seekers have their attorneys, which resulted that asylum seekers due to their illiteracy missed the deadlines for using legal remedies.
