Merits

The Committee, acting under article 5 (4) of the Optional Protocol, is of the view that the authors’ removal to Bulgaria would not violate their rights under article 7 of the Covenant. The Committee is confident, however, that the State party will duly inform the Bulgarian authorities of the authors’ removal, in order for the authors and their children to be taken charge of in a manner adapted to their needs, especially taking into account the age of the children.
