F v Bevandorlasi es allampolgarsagi Hivatal (Directive 2011/95/EU) Case C-473/16

This request for a preliminary ruling concerns the interpretation of Article 1 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union and Article 4 of Directive 2011/95/EU on standards for the qualification of third-country nationals or stateless persons as beneficiaries of international protection. The applicant, a Nigerian national claims that he had a well-founded fear of being persecuted in his country of origin on account of his homosexuality. The referring court asks the ECJ to clarify whether Article 4 of Directive 2011/95 must be interpreted, in the light of Article 1 of the Charter as meaning that when the asylum application is based on persecution on grounds of sexual orientation, neither the national administrative authorities nor the courts have any possibility of examining, by expert methods, the truthfulness of the claims of the applicant for asylum, irrespective of the particular characteristics of those methods?
