<p><i>Criminal law. Asylum seeker. Forgery. Refugee Convention.</i></p> <p>A citizen of Cameroon was convicted in the District Court and the Court of Appeal for violation of Section 182 of the Penal Code. Upon arrival at Gardermoen airport, he had presented a false Portuguese residence card. After being taken aside for an immigration check, he informed that he was seeking protection in Norway. The Supreme Court concluded that he was protected by Article 31 no. 1 of the Refugee Convention. The Convention's requirement that a refugee shall seek protection "without delay" was met, as he had sought protection before the immigration check was completed. The Court of Appeal's judgment with appeal hearing was overturned.</p> <p>Ref.: HR-2014-1323-A, (case no. 2014/220)</p> <p><i>English summary and translation provided by the Court.</i></p>
