    (ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS, MAY 31 - Asylum seekers moving across Europe can't be sent back to the country where they applied for asylum without their consent, the European Court of Justice said Thursday, ruling on a case regarding Iraqi national Adil Hassan.

    After applying for international protection in Germany, Hassan moved to France. He was stopped by authorities, which then asked Germany to take him back, ordering his transfer back to Germany without waiting for Berlin's answer. Hasan filed a case against France, based on the Dublin III Regulation. With its ruling on Thursday, the Court said that a decision to transfer a person can be adopted and notified to them only after the member State concerned has implicitly or explicitly accepted to take back that person, under the Dublin III Regulation.
