According to the ECHR Press Release,
In its committee decision in the case of Abokar v. Sweden (application no. 23270/16) the European Court of Human Rights has unanimously declared the application under Article 8 (right to respect for family life) of the European Convention on Human Rights inadmissible. The case concerned the Swedish authorities’ refusal to grant the applicant a residence permit for family reunion purposes. The Court was satisfied that the authorities had struck a fair balance between Mr Abokar’s interests, on the one hand, and those of the State in the effective implementation of immigration policy, on the other.
