Criminal permit rights EU ruling

The European Court of Justice has ruled that Turkish employees granted EU
residence permits through the EC-Turkey Association Agreement cannot have their
right to live and work in the European Union revoked, if found guilty of a
crime.

Judges held that such an expulsion could only take place where it could be
shown that "personal conduct is liable to be prejudicial to the public
interest again."

The ruling follows an attempt by the Municipality of Nuremberg to expel Ömer
Nazli from Germany, following his drugs trafficking conviction.

The case will be taken to the Bavarian Administrative Court.
