The claimant claims to be a non-Arab Darfuri (of Tunjur ethnic origin) national of Sudan. He travelled to the United Kingdom via France where he claimed asylum. His asylum claim was refused. He arrived in the United Kingdom in 2012 and claimed asylum on 1 June 2012. Since his arrival in the United Kingdom, he has obtained an expert report from Mr. Peter Verney dated 2 May 2014.
The claimant's judicial review claim now stands as a challenge to the decision of the defendant of 30 June 2014 which replaced earlier decisions made on 10 July 2012, 8 August 2012, 1 October 2012 and 8 January 2013 to remove him to France as a safe third country without considering his asylum claim. France has accepted responsibility for considering his asylum claim under Council Regulation (EC) No. 343/2003 (the "Dublin II Regulation").
