Three quarters of ‘suspicious’ child migrants in Sweden turned out to be over 18, tests on their teeth and knees prove

The Swedish Migration Board were skeptical of 4,200 asylum cases of migrants without papers claiming to be children, so sent the names to forensic experts to determine how old they were.

The company, Rättsmedicinalverket, is now sifting through the files and having tested 581 people, 447 of them have been medically proven to be 18 years old or older.
