This page summarizes cases raised with the Netherlands by the Special Rapporteur between May 1, 2011, (when the Special Rapporteur took up his functions) and February 28, 2016 (the date of the last public release of communications). Communications are released to the public once per year. This page also contains observations on these communications and on responses received from the Netherlands.
Communications and observations are divided into sections based upon which observation report they originally appeared.
Each communication is referenced as urgent appeal (UA), allegation letter (AL), joint urgent appeal (JUA) and joint allegation letter (JAL) – the hyperlinks lead to these documents. This is followed by the date the communication was issued, as well as the case number and the State reply (also hyperlinked if available).
Summaries and communications are published only in the language of submission (in the case of the Netherlands, English).
The Special Rapporteur wishes to thank the Government of the Netherlands for its response to the communication sent during the reporting period.
The Special Rapporteur notes that Mr. Kurbanjan Mutalip was granted a residence permit in July 2012.
