Cyprus seeks Commission approval of asylum procedure suspension till sidans topp

On 10 November the Republic of Cyprus announced that it will request European Commission approval to suspend asylum procedures on the island for people entering the country "illegally". According to Italian authorities, almost 60,000 people have disembarked in 2021 so far and arrivals continue. Ten people have lost their lives off Libya where unrest continues. The number of people intercepted and returned to Libya from the Med nears 30,000 in total.

According to government spokesperson Marios Pelekanos, Cyprus will request the European Commission grant the Republic of Cyprus "the right to suspend asylum applications by people entering the country illegally". The spokesperson justified the move - that contravenes the right to an asylum assessment and potentially breaches the principle of non-refoulement - on the basis of an increase in arrivals via Turkish held Northern Cyprus.

Plekanos stated that more than 9,000 out of 10,868 arrivals in the first 10 months of 2021 entered the country via the porous "Green Line". Adopting the framing used by the Greek government, he added that this constituted: "a clear policy of instrumentalising human pain by Turkey". The Cypriot government has taken a hardline approach to asylum seekers including through recent controversial pushbacks of Syrian nationals to Lebanon. The administration maintains that asylum seekers represent a demographic challenge as their number exceeds four per cent of the island population: however, activist groups deem this figure misleading.

Tracking the Pact: Lawyers denounce "deadly" screening proposals till sidans topp

The French Bar Association has denounced EU proposals for accelerated asylum screening procedures at the borders as "deadly", and the Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe has also expressed serious concerns over the plans.

A report adopted by the general assembly of the Conseil National des Barraux earlier this month has the following to say about the proposed "screening" rules that would introduce detention at or near the EU's borders (emphasis added):

"In contrast to the respect of the oldest law, the law of hospitality, the screening procedure procedure proposed by the European Commission would constitute an additional barrier in the the journey of the person wishing to travel to Europe and would be located before the the EU's external borders; it would be introduced solely in the interest of the Member States and to the detriment of the exiled persons.

Indeed, the identification phase is likely to irreversibly prevent people from exercising certain fundamental rights. Thus, asylum seekers risk never being able to register their claim for international protection, even if they are minors, who should clearly be in the care of child protection services.

Furthermore, the regime applicable during screening operations blatantly disregards the essential guarantees of the individual, in the absence of a legal framework and legal assistance.

Similarly, the proposed new border procedure would in fact increase the number of cases where so-called "accelerated" asylum procedures are applied, in which procedural guarantees are often ignored, or at the very least greatly diminished.

These reforms would have a negative impact on the legislation currently in force in France, the guarantees of which would be seriously undermined.
