In the case in question, the Court of Justice had to rule on whether a judicial authority should be regarded as one of the ‘other authorities’ likely to receive applications for international protection mentioned in Article 6(1) of Directive 2013/32, and whether that authority is required to provide an applicant with relevant information on the asylum procedure. These issues arose due to a decision to return a Malian national who had expressed his intention to apply for international protection before the referring court. The Court of Justice also determined the moment in which a third-country national acquires the status of applicant for international protection, as well as on the consequences of this status, such as the conditions and limits of detention.
