Diallo Mamadou Mouctar (Guinea) vs Belgium
In this case the applicant, a Guinean national, declared himself a refugee on 4th February 2019. He declared he was born on January 4th 2002, so he was taken in charge by the Guardianship service as an unaccompanied minor. However, the Immigration Office raised some doubts about his real age because of his physical appearance, and requested that a medical examination be carried out. The medical examination concluded the age of the aplicant to be 26.7 years old. Based on that, the Immigration Office decided to cease the Guardianship as the applicant didn't meet the conditions to benefit from the designation of a tutor. The applicant appealed that decision.
