In its judgment the Court dismissed the applicant's complaint that his deportation from Sweden to Iraq would put him at risk of being subject to treatment in violation of Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights. The applicant, a married man with a wife and two children, claimed that one of the reasons that he was at risk of treatment that would violate his Article 3 rights was because of potential persecution in light of a previous homosexual relationship.
The European Commission on Sexual Orientation Law now include the judgment in their list of sexual orientation judgments issued by the Court - and, as I did, they characterise the substantive issue in this case as 'how to prove homosexuality'.
Furthermore, the Netherlands Institute of Human Rights have provided a factual discussion of the group of similar facts cases to which M.K.N. v Sweden belongs. This is interesting insofar as it gives broader context to the specific issues raised about homosexuality by the applicant.
I hope that further discussion of this case is forthcoming in the future.
