Abstract
The Court ruled that a third-country national whose application for international protection has been rejected as manifestly unfounded at first instance by the competent administrative authority, can’t be detained with a view to his removal, where, he is lawfully authorised to remain on that territory until a decision has been made on his action relating to the right to remain on that territory pending the outcome of the appeal brought against the decision which rejected his application for international protection.
