W vs. Denmark PTSD case

Concerning W vs. Denmark.

The author was applying for Danish nationality, but due to his disability (suffering from Post Traumatisk stress) he was not able to pass a language test. Since he was not able to get dispensation from Danish authorities he complaint to the Human Rights Committee in 2011. When new rules were introduced he was awarded Danish nationality and the case was thus discontinued. See also attached Communication No. 2001/2010 “Q. vs. Denmark”, where the Committee in a similar case found violation of CCPR article 26.
