R (on the application of W) v Croydon London Borough Council and another

Immigration - Age assessment - Credibility

The Claimant's challenge to his determination of age failed, as the evidence available supported the contention that he was over the age of 18 upon entry to the UK.

13 April 2012

Administrative Court

C M G Ockelton (judgment delivered extempore)

(1)        The Claimant, an Afghan national, had sought asylum upon entry to the UK. He claimed to have been born in 1995, and was therefore a child upon entry in to the UK. The Claimant only had unofficial documentation in support of his claim. The first Defendant, a local authority, had assessed the Claimant as an adult, although it was admitted that the determination had been difficult and reached primarily on the basis of experience. The second Defendant, the Secretary of State, had not disputed the Claimant's challenge.
