Sent back to France (From Switzerland) according to the terms of the Dublin agreements

Extract from Récit de Omer • 30 years old • Man • Kurdish

Not knowing anyone in Marseille I decided to go to Switzerland where I had friends and acquaintances who were from my hometown. I took a train to Basel where a friend offered to put me up.

In Switzerland I applied for asylum and three months later I was informed by the Swiss authorities that my application could not be granted because I had a French visa. According to the terms of the Dublin Regulation I had to apply for asylum in France.
