A 26-year-old Afghan migrant convicted of raping minors in Norway is currently in Sweden enrolled as an “18-year-old” high school student.

Abdul Khan had told Swedish officials he was born on October 6th, 1999, but data from Interpol says Norwegian authorities have his birthdate as February 2nd, 1992.

“Interpol also states that the Afghan was sentenced to 10 months in prison in Norway in 2013 for sexual intercourse with children,” reports Nyheter Idag.

Khan is now reportedly using his fake age to benefit from preferential treatment as an “unaccompanied refugee child” while applying for a Swedish residence permit.

To do this, Khan is appealing to a controversial high school campaign that wants to provide 9,000 young Afghan men who failed the asylum process the ability to stay in Sweden, but only if they attend high school courses.

Khan appears to be in a beurocratic limbo during his residence application process as the only thing that appears to legally keep him in Sweden is the aforementioned high school campaign.

Additionally, another Swedish media site claims Khan has remained there illegally for months but there’s been no indication that authorities have attempted to expel him.

This news comes at the heels of Swedish police arresting a “man in his 20s” for raping a high school teacher in a classroom.

Correspondingly, Infowars Europe previously reported in May that Sweden was allowing adult migrants to attend high schools while waiting for their asylum decision.

“Grown-up foreigners will be in the same high school class as your children,” said a local politician. “And you pay for it! Do not think it ends here.”
