Council of Europe shelves case against Italy for migrant detention

Strasbourg recognises steps forward after rights violations

(ANSA) - ROME, DEC 3 - The Council of Europe on Friday shelved a case against Italy for migrant detention without appeal, the CoE's council of ministers said.
    It said Italy had introduced a system whereby migrants can appeal to judges on the legality, duration and conditions of their detention in reception centres.
    This ended a case opened by a CoE sentence in 2016 that condemned violation of migrants' rights.
    The sentence also condemned the arbitrary detention of a group of migrants in 2011.
    Strasbourg has now recognised that Italy has taken steps forward since the violations were found. (ANSA).
