Summary of facts: The Applicant is a Sri Lankan national. The Ministry of Public Order rejected his request for renewal of his residence permit in Greece for reasons of public interest and ordered the police authorities to force him to leave the country. The company in which the Applicant worked as an employee appealed against this decision of expulsion by the MPO claiming that he was essential for the company due to his linguistic skills.
Reasoning and decision: The Committee reiterated the principle that, when prohibition for an alien to remain in Greece is justified on reasons of public order, the decision ordering his departure cannot be suspended, unless exceptional reasons relating to risk for his life/security/freedom occur. It rejected the company's claim considering that it lacked the exceptional character needed for a suspension to be granted. The Application was rejected.
