'Some 43 percent of migrants in Germany who claim to be underage are actually adults, local media reports, citing official data. The figures for one of Germany’s major cities, Hamburg, are even higher.
Out of a total of 55,890 asylum seekers claiming to be under the age of 18 and being treated as such by German authorities, 24,116 were officially of adult age, Die Welt newspaper reported, citing the Federal Ministry of Family Affairs. The media outlet claimed the data was valid as of November 8.
In some German cities, the proportion of false “underage” migrants appears to be even higher. In 2016 in Hamburg, for example, 47 percent of 1,813 migrants claiming to be minors turned out to be legally of adult age, according to official statistics. The same pattern persisted this year, as 49 percent of newly arrived 485 “unaccompanied minors” were actually adults.
Those migrants who claim to be underage fall under the responsibility of the Child and Youth Emergency Service (KJND) – a local welfare service, existing in the majority of German communities. The KJND then assesses their claims, paying particular attention to those who do not have a passport or any other official documents.
If the social service suspects a “minor” may be an adult, it sends that person to a medical facility to determine an estimated age. The tests include X-rays, computed tomography, as well as other checks, namely evaluation of the jaw and finger bones, which can easily determine a person’s age.'
