  • V.F. v France

    Country: France

    Court: European Court of Human Rights

    Sentence date: 29 November 2011

    Purpose of exploitation: Exploitation of prostitution

    The Nigerian applicant lodged an application for asylum with the French Office for Protection of Refugees and Stateless Persons (OFPRA).  She took the view that return to Nigeria would have put her at risk of being forced into prostitution again. She relied among others on Article 4 of the Convention. Her application was rejected as manifestly ill-founded.
