Fingerprint registration for asylum seekers over six-years-old?

Published måndag 7 augusti 2006 kl 12.10

More and more European Union countries want children aged six and above to register with fingerprints when seeking asylum within the bloc. 

Currently, those aged 14 and above are required to leave fingerprint registration but now, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands are leading calls for the change, with Sweden supporting a lowering of the age as well.  According to a spokesman for Sweden’s Migration Board:  the change is needed because of the increasing number of asylum-seeking children arriving alone, saying that it would be in their best interest.
