Immigration:determination of age
1 July 2011
Administrative Court
Frances Patterson QC
(1) The Claimant was an Iranian asylum seeker who was allegedly aged 14 (Date of birth 3 September 1995). The Respondent was a Local Authority who had determined the Claimant to be aged 16. The Claimant had left Iran in haste after the murder of his step-father. He did not have his birth certificate. The Home Office accepted that he was under 18, but disputed that he was the age he claimed. Three age assessments were undertaken, all of which concluded that the Claimant was older than he said he was.
