The AIRE Centre, DCR, ICJ and ECRE - Joint submission on the supervision of execution of Khlaifia & others v. Italy

The detention of third-country nationals in “hotspots” and in pre-removal centres (Centri di permanenza per il rimpatrio, CPR) continues to be an issue in Italy. Key areas of concern include: 
  • the de facto detention of third-country nationals upon arrival for the purposes of identification without any formal detention order and an assessment of necessity and proportionality; 
  • the lack of information provision and access to effective remedies to review detention;  
  • and, the lack of an effective remedy concerning detention conditions.
