Quote:German authorities to sue 'lying Dutchman'

On Monday, van Helsum was forced to leave the care home in Berlin where he had been put up by the welfare office, which had assumed he was a minor.

He lived there at the taxpayer's expense for ten months, at a reported total cost of €30,000, including €140 pocket money a month.

"We will file a suit for fraudulent appropriation of youth benefits during the course of the week," Ed Koch, spokesman for the district youth welfare office, told Berlin's B.Z. newspaper. "We're going to demand this money back. Whether we ever see it again, we don't know."

Van Helsum showed up at Berlin's town hall last September claiming he was a 17-year-old called Ray, and had been living in the forest for the past five years with his father. His fanciful story, that his father had died in the forest, leaving him instructions to walk north until he found civilisation, bamboozled police, press, and state authorities for ten months.....http://www.thelocal.de/society/20120619-43239.htmll
