Hence even if the asylum procedure offers effective safeguards, these are of no use if, as in the present case, the asylum claim is not registered for a long period of time. [85] violation of article 13 (effective remedy) in combination with article 3 ECHR.

However, the applicants had not been appropriately informed about the reasons for their arrest or the remedies available in order to challenge that detention.
