Scientific Methods To Be Used In Determining Real Age Of UK Asylum Seekers

The Britain Government is set to seek scientific help in determining the real age of asylum seekers.

This is aimed at stopping adults posing as children when claiming asylum.

According to the government, there were 1,696 of such cases till September 2021.

In a statement by the Interior Minister, Priti Patel, the practice of single grown adult men, masquerading as children claiming asylum is an appalling abuse of the system which must end.

It was gathered from Reuters that a new committee will look at a range of scientific methods for determining age and assess their accuracy and reliability.

Reports reveal that some European states  use x-ray and other medical scans to help determine a person's age.
