Case No. 1464/2021 before the Sofia City Administrative Court, Judgment No. 4182 of 24 June 2021

The Court concluded that a child born in Bulgaria, who is fully integrated in the community cannot be returned to his country of origin together with his mother, where he will be at risk of being persecuted under Article 9, para 1 in relation to para 2, item f of Directive 2011/95/EU. Even if there is no well-founded fear of persecution for the mother, the national authorities should not allow such a risk to be inflicted on the child. As the mother is the only caregiver to the child, there is a ground for granting her international protection due to the need to preserve the family unity.
