Abstract

This judgement is one of the examples of the new working method of the Administrative Division of Council of State. Based on the judgement ECLI:NL:RVS:2019:1061 from 3 April 2019, the Administrative Division now uses a new, sixth form of motivation of its decisions. Aliens Act, Article 91 allows the court to reject an application with a standard, short motivation. However, legal practicioners often found this short reasoning unsatisfactory. Therefore, the court now rejects the application and uses one of the template sentences developed, to provide more context for the ground of the refusal.
