The Hungarian Helsinki Committee together with the European Council for Refugees and Exiles (ECRE), the Dutch Council for Refugees (DCR), the AIRE Center, and the International Commission for Jurists (ICJ) submitted a third party intervention in the case of S.B. v. Croatia, app. no. 18810/19. The case concerns collective expulsion of migrants, including children, from Croatia to Bosnia and Herzegovina, and excessive use of force. In the intervention we have highlighted the international and EU legal standards regarding the principle of non-refoulement, the prohibition of collective expulsions, and the use of force, as well as the need to take into account specific vulnerabilities of asylum seekers and children.
