Cour Administrative d’Appel de Nantes, 4ème chambre, 19/07/2016, 15NT03704, Inédit au recueil Lebon

In the present case, the Administrative Court of Appeal of Nantes (Cour administrative d’appel de Nantes) was required to rule over a violation of Regulation (EU) No 604/2013.
X, an Afghan national, entered illegally in France after having lodged an asylum application in Bulgaria. The Prefect of La Manche ordered the transfer of X to Bulgarian authorities responsible to examine his application. X challenged the prefectural decree before the Administrative court of Caen (Tribunal administratif de Caen). Having not succeeded, X lodged an appeal before the Administrative Court of Appeal of Nantes alleging a violation of Articles 3, 4 and 5 of Regulation (EU) No 604/2013.
