Parliamentary questions
1 June 2018
E-000288/2018
Answer given by Mr Avramopoulos on behalf of the Commission

The examination of applications for international protection and the decision on the detention of applicants for international protection in accordance with EC law is the responsibility of Member States. The Commission is not in a position to intervene in an individual case.

In accordance with the Asylum Procedures Directive(1), Member States shall ensure that applicants have the right to an effective remedy before a court or tribunal against a decision taken on their application for international protection. Where a question of interpretation of the Treaties or the validity and interpretation of acts of the institutions, bodies, offices or agencies of the Union is raised before a court or tribunal of a Member State, that court or tribunal may, if it considers that a decision on the question is necessary to enable it to give judgment, request the Court of Justice of the European Union to give a ruling thereon, in accordance with Article 267 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union. Where such a question is raised in a case pending before a court or tribunal of a Member State against whose decisions there is no judicial remedy under national law, that court or tribunal shall bring the matter before the Court of Justice of the European Union.

(1)Directive 2013/32/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 June 2013 on common procedures for granting and withdrawing international protection (recast).
