Customer Question

Would an American citizen be permitted to seek 'constitutional asylum' as provided by the French Constitution? The United States is not listed as a "safe country"---under which an asylum seeker would likely be disqualified if a citizen of that country. Never-the-less, America is considered to be safe, despite DSK recent experience, and that of other men. this is not an academic question, despite its academic nature. merci bien.

A good French lawyer who specializes in being an advocate for those seeking asylum would be perhaps best, XXXXX XXXXX retired judge or jurist, or constitutional law professor would be just as knowledgeable---or well versed enough in law to know if there is precedent---by my research, only one individual has ever successful sought constitutional asylum with success, if only because political asylum is what is usually more applicable. In my case, it would not be. merci XXXXX XXXXX que vous auriez la chance! rcw
