Having regard to Article 25 (art. 25) of the Convention for the
Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms;

Having regard to the application introduced on 7 August 1985 by H. A.
against the Netherlands and registered on 9 September 1985 under file
No. 11733/85;

Having regard to the report provided for in Rule 40 of the Rules of
Procedure of the Commission;

Having deliberated;

Decides as follows:

THE FACTS

The facts of the case, as they have been submitted by the applicant,
may be summarised as follows.  The applicant is a Turkish citizen,
born in 1941 and presently residing at Dordrecht, the Netherlands.  He
is represented by Mrs. M.D. van Aller, a lawyer practising at
Amsterdam.

In 1974, the applicant entered the Netherlands on a provisional
residence permit.  In November 1974, this was replaced by a residence
permit valid until 16 September 1975 and eventually extended until
14 April 1981.

From 1974 until 1980, the applicant either worked or received social
security benefits.  Since October 1980, the applicant has been
receiving unemployment benefits (RWW).  The applicant's request for
extension of his residence permit was refused by the head of the
Municipal Police of Dordrecht on 9 November 1982.  The applicant
thereupon introduced a request for revision with the Deputy Minister
of Justice (Staatssecretaris van Justitie) which was, however, refused
on 14 February 1983.  A subsequent appeal was rejected on
22 April 1985 by the Council of State's Division for Jurisdiction
(Afdeling Rechtspraak van de Raad van State).

The Council considered, inter alia, that according to Section 11 of
the Dutch Aliens Act (Vreemdelingenwet) a residence permit could be
refused in the general interest, and noted that the applicant had lost
his job because of unlawful absence from work, and had been receiving
unemployment benefits since.  The Council concluded that the
authorities could have reasonably decided that the applicant's request
for a residence permit was to be refused.

COMPLAINTS

The applicant complains that that Council of State's Division for
Jurisdiction (Afdeling Rechtspraak van de Raad van State) is not an
impartial and independent tribunal.  He alleges that the members of
the Division for Jurisdiction only defend the interests of the
Netherlands government, resulting in a restrictive policy towards
aliens.  In connection with this complaint he alleges that both the
Council of State's Division for Jurisdiction and the procedure
relating to requests for revision to the Minister of Justice are not
effective remedies.  The applicant invokes Articles 6 and 13
(art. 6, art. 13) of the Convention in this respect.

Furthermore, the applicant complains that his expulsion to Turkey
constitutes an unjustified interference with his right to respect for
private life, contrary to Article 8 (art. 8) of the Convention.  He
alleges that, according to the European Social Charter, expulsion is
not allowed on the mere ground that he receives social security
benefits.

The applicant also alleged that, in addition to being a victim of a
violation of Articles 6, 8 and 13 (art. 6, art. 8, art. 13) in
themselves, he has been the victim of a violation of Article 14
(art. 14) of the Convention read in conjunction with these Articles
(art. 6, art. 8, art. 13).

Finally, the applicant complains that, as a result of his expulsion,
he is deprived of his social security benefits, and he invokes
Article 1 of Protocol No. 1 (P1-1) to the Convention.

THE LAW

1.      The applicant has complained that the expulsion procedure in
the Netherlands constituted a denial of his rights under Article 6
para. 1 (art. 6-1) of the Convention which ensures, inter alia,:

"In the determination of his civil rights and obligations... everyone
is entitled to a fair and public hearing within a reasonable time by
an independent and impartial tribunal established by law...."

In addition, he complained of a violation of Article 13 (art. 13)
of the Convention which provides that:

"Everyone whose rights and freedoms as set forth in this Convention
are violated shall have an effective remedy before a national
authority notwithstanding that the violation has been committed by
persons acting in an official capacity."

The Commission recalls that a decision as to whether an alien should
be allowed to stay in a country is a discretionary act by a public
authority, which does not involve as such the determination of civil
rights within the meaning of Article 6 para. 1 (art. 6-1) of the
Convention (Dec. 8244/78, 2.5.79, D.R. 17 p. 149 and Dec. 7902/77,
18.5.77, D.R. 9 p. 224).  It follows that this part of the application
must be rejected as incompatible ratione materiae within the meaning
of Article 27 para. 2 (art. 27-2) of the Convention.

Consequently the applicants' complaint under Article 13 (art. 13)
of the Convention, read in conjunction with Article 6 (art. 6)
of the Convention must also be rejected as being incompatible ratione
materiae with the provisions of the Convention.

2.      Furthermore, the applicant has complained that his expulsion
constitutes an unjustified interference with his right to respect for
private life.  He alleges a violation Article 8 (art. 8)
of the Convention which provides, inter alia:

"Everyone has the right to respect for his private and family life,
his home and his correspondence..."

The Commission, however, finds that a disruption of private life is
the inevitable consequence of any deportation which is recognised
under the terms of Article 5 para. 1 sub-para. (f) (art. 5-1-f) of the
Convention, and cannot in principle be regarded as an interference
with the right to respect for private life protected by Article 8
(art. 8) of the Convention. The applicant has not submitted any
evidence which would suggest that this principle should be departed
from in the present case.  The Commission, therefore, finds that there
has been no interference with the applicant's right to respect for his
private life and it follows that this part of the application must
also be rejected as manifestly ill-founded within the meaning of
Article 27 para. 2 (art. 27-2) of the Convention.

3.      Moreover, the applicant has complained that he has been the
victim of a violation of Article 14 (art. 14) of the Convention read in
conjunction with Articles 6, 8 and 13 (art. 6, art. 8, art. 13).
Article 14 (art. 14) of the Convention provides as follows:

"The enjoyment of the rights and freedoms set forth in this Convention
shall be secured without discrimination on any ground such as sex,
race, colour, language, religion, political or other opinion, national
or social origin, association with a national minority, property,
birth or other status. "

The Commission, however, found above that the applicant's complaints
under Articles 6 and 13 (art. 6, art. 13) of the Convention were
incompatible ratione materiae with the provision of the Convention.
His complaints under Article 14 (art. 14) of the Convention read in
conjunction with Articles 6 and 13 (art. 6, art. 13) of the Convention
must therefore also be rejected as being incompatible ratione materiae
with the provision of the Convention, within the meaning of Article 27
para. 2 (art. 27-2) of the Convention.

In addition, the Commission finds no indication that the applicant has
been discriminated against in his enjoyment of the rights guaranteed
by Article 8 (art. 8) of the Convention contrary to Article 14
(art. 14) of the Convention. His status as an alien would in itself
provide objective and reasonable justification for his being subject
to different treatment in the field of immigration law to persons
holding Netherlands citizenship.  This complaint, accordingly, is also
manifestly ill-founded within the meaning of Article 27 para. 2
(art. 27-2) of the Convention.

4.      Finally, the applicant alleges that as a result of his expulsion
he is deprived of his social security benefits.  He also alleges that
he cannot take his possessions to Turkey.  He invokes Article 1 of
Protocol No. 1 (P1-1) of the Convention which provides:

"Every natural or legal person is entitled to the peaceful enjoyment
of his possessions.  No one shall be deprived of his possession except
in the public interest and subject to the conditions provided for by
law and by the general principles of international law."

The Commission notes that the Social Security benefits concerned are
unemployment benefits (RWW) and are set up as a general insurance
(Volksverzekering) based on the principle of social solidarity.  No
direct links exist between the level of contributions and the benefits
awarded.  Consequently, a person does not have, at any given moment,
an identifiable and claimable share in the fund (cf. Dec. 10503/83,
16.5.85 unpublished).

Therefore, the Commission is of the opinion that in the above
circumstances the right to benefits cannot be considered to constitute
a property right which could be described as "possessions" within the
meaning of Article 1 of Protocol No. 1 (P1-1) to the Convention.
Accordingly, the applicant's complaints under this provision must be
rejected under Article 27 para. 2 (art. 27-2) of the Convention as
being incompatible ratione materiae with the provisions of the
Convention.

With regard to the applicant's complaint that he cannot take his
possessions along to Turkey, the Commission considers that he has
failed to substantiate these allegations.  Therefore, the Commission
finds that the remainder of the application is also manifestly
ill-founded within the meaning of Article 27 para. 2 (art. 27-2)
of the Convention.

For these reasons, the Commission
