Three migrant men lied about their age to receive THOUSANDS in benefits that were intended for children.
They have been jailed for supplying false information to Austrian authorities.
The trio has swindled over €100,000 ($105,000 USD) in social benefits.
Their excuses are bizarre:
The case against the three was brought after a court ordered medical reports which revealed that the men were older than stated on documents supplied during their asylum application.
Two of the accused denied the accusation of having unlawfully obtained the social benefits, claiming their parents were to blame as they wrote down the dates of birth according to the Afghan calendar (the Solar Hijri calendar).
This calendar, used only in Iran and Afghanistan, has six months of 31 days, then five months with 30 days each and finally one with 29 days, except in leap years where it has 30.
The pair said they did not know their own birth dates…
…The third man admitted in court that he had lied about his age.
He said: “People said it was better to apply as a minor as then I cannot be deported back. I was afraid that I would then be killed in Afghanistan like my father was.”

This has been an ongoing issue in Europe with adult migrants posing as children to avoid deportation and claim additional benefits.
It’s not welfare, it’s the jizya, and this has been going on since Muhammad. The jizya is a poll tax, a ransom that the non-believers must pay to Muslims under Islamic law. In fact, America’s first and second foreign wars, The Barbary Wars, were against Muslim countries that were demanding jizya from the US for the return of kidnapped Americans and seized merchant ships.
Government welfare benefits to polygamous families (which are illegal in Canada) in Toronto, Canada (and likely elsewhere in the country) has been an ongoing issue:
Hundreds of GTA [Greater Toronto Area] Muslim men in polygamous marriages — some with a harem of wives — are receiving welfare and social benefits for each of their spouses, thanks to the city and province, Muslim leaders say.
Mumtaz Ali, president of the Canadian Society of Muslims, said wives in polygamous marriages are recognized as spouses under the Ontario Family Law Act, providing they were legally married under Muslim laws abroad.
“Polygamy is a regular part of life for many Muslims,” Ali said yesterday. “Ontario recognizes religious marriages for Muslims and others.”
He estimates “several hundred” GTA husbands in polygamous marriages are receiving benefits. Under Islamic law, a Muslim man is permitted to have up to four spouses.
However, city and provincial officials said legally a welfare applicant can claim only one spouse. Other adults living in the same household can apply for welfare independently.
The average recipient with a child can receive about $1,500 monthly, city officials said.

This shows that Islam isn’t just a religion, but a political ideology:
Muhammad clearly established that people of other religions have to pay a poll tax to Muslims called the jizya, as a reminder of their inferior status. This abrogates an earlier verse stating that there is “no compulsion in religion” and it destroys any pretense that Islam is merely a religion and not a political system.
