M.Z.B.M. v Denmark, 2017 (Human Rights Committee)
The case concerns a transgender Malaysian national who claimed that her deportation from Denmark to Malaysia would violate her rights under Article 7 ICCPR (prohibition of inhuman and degrading treatment), in conjunction with articles 17(1) (privacy and family life), 18(1) (freedom of thought, conscience and religion) and 26 (non-discrimination). The Committee considered her claims admissible in relation to the persecution based on her gender identity. However, because national authorities had thoroughly examined the claims and the account was “generic”, it found that the removal to Malaysia would not constitute a violation of her rights under Article 7 in conjunction with Articles 17(1) and 26 ICCPR.
