The Hungarian Helsinki Committee (HHC) and Women with Women Together Against Violence (NANE) submitted a third party intervention to the European Court of Human Rights on 20 July 2020 in A. A. v. Poland, Application no. 47888/19 that concerns the detention of a single asylum seeking woman, a survivor of violence.
Through this third party intervention, the HHC and NANE wish to direct the Court’s attention to the inherently detrimental effect of detention on survivors of violence, and show how this renders detention unlawful. Read the intervention in full here.
