Third party intervention at the ECtHR in Mahamud v. the Netherlands, app. no. 64534/19

The Hungarian Helsinki Committee (HHC) submitted a third party intervention to the European Court of Human Rights on 8 April 2021 in Mahamud v. the Netherlands, App. no. 64534/19 that concerns a family reunification of a refugee’s sibling.

Through this third party intervention, the HHC reflects on the notion of dependency and suggests the interpretation that would be in line with the State’s positive obligations under the right to family life of a refugee, as guaranteed by Article 8 of the Convention.
