Truth about child refugees: Two-thirds quizzed about their age are found to be ADULTS, official report reveals after almost 3,000 people claiming to be unaccompanied minors apply for asylum in a year
- Nearly two-thirds of ‘child’ refugees were found to be adults new report shows
- In one year, 65 per cent of asylum seekers assessed were judged to be over 18
- Home Office received 2,952 asylum applications from unaccompanied children
Nearly two-thirds of ‘child’ refugees who were questioned about their real age after coming to Britain were found to be adults, an official report has found.
In one year, 65 per cent of asylum seekers assessed after claiming to be juveniles were judged to be over 18.
The report, by immigration watchdog David Bolt, revealed that the Home Office received 2,952 asylum applications from unaccompanied children in the year to June last year.
Out of these there were 705 age disputes – around a quarter of the total – where officials suspected the individual was lying about their age. Of these, 618 cases were resolved and 402 – or 65 per cent – were found to be adults.
If these asylum seekers had been treated as children it would have left councils and local taxpayers facing a care bill of millions of pounds a year.
The Dark Side of the ‘White Helmets’
Hungary’s anti-migrant Prime Minister Viktor Orban has won a third consecutive term, according to election office data.
Mr Orban’s ruling Fidesz party and its small ally the Christian Democrat party are projected to win 133 seats, which would give them a two-thirds majority in the 199-seat Hungarian parliament.
The 54-year-old said the result meant an “opportunity to defend Hungary”, adding that the high voter turnout had “cast aside all doubts”.
He declared: “Hungary has won a great victory.”
The right-wing nationalist Jobbik party was set to win 19.9% of the votes (26 seats) and its chairman Gabor Vona resigned after the result.
The alliance of the left-wing Socialist and Dialogue parties had 11.8% of the vote, which would give them 20 deputies in parliament.
Two other parties – former prime minister Ferenc Gyurcsany’s Democratic Coalition and the green Politics Can Be Different party – were expected to surpass the 5% required for representation in parliament.
Some 98.5% of the votes have been counted and turnout was 68.8%.
