Case type: expulsion / deportation

The complainant in the case is a minor national of Georgia (“K.K.”). The case concerns her deportation from Switzerland to Georgia.

Circumstances of the case

The complainant and her parents suffer from a number of serious mental disorders. All the family members have either attempted suicide or are at risk of suicide.

Complaint to the Committee on the Rights of the Child

In the complaint to the Committee we argued that  the deportation of K.K. to Georgia would violate a number of provisions of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, as in Georgia she would not be guaranteed access to the necessary psychological treatment and conditions for her full development would not be created.
