Deportation to Afghanistan 

There was a war going on and in 1991 the author and his family were fleeing Afghanistan to Iran. In 2004, the author move back to Afghanistan. In 2006, fighting started between Sunni and Shia Muslims. Commandant F.A. led the attackers, the author’s house was also attacked, and he was fleeing from Afghanistan to Iran again. In 2010, the author and his family were deported from Iran to Afghanistan and they got a residence in Herat. Nevertheless, the author had a conflict with a supporter of Commandant F.A. and flee again.

The author A.b.H. arrived in Denmark in 2011 and asked for asylum. In 2012, the Danish Refugee Board rejected that the author was in risk of persecution because of his conflict with F.A. and the author needed to be deported. Staying in Denmark, the author was baptized in Denmark.

A.b.H. presented a communication v. Denmrak in violation of CCPR articles 6,7,13,26. After Danish authorities several times reopened his case, the author got an asylum status in Denmark.

In 2015, the CCPR decided to discontinue the consideration of the communication, because the author was granted asylum and is no longer at risk of deportation.
