  • The Dutchman filed a lawsuit to change his age

Kyiv: Netherlands pensioner Emil Ratelband filed a lawsuit in court, through which he wants to change his age. Now a man is 69 years old, however “he feels himself 20 years younger”. It is reported by the Dutch edition Algemeen Dagblad.

"Emil Ratelband wants to officially change his date of birth from March 11, 1949, to March 11, 1969, and compares this with a change of a gender," the report says.

“You can change the name, you can change the gender. Why not the age?” he said.

As reported by the media, Ratelband has already filed a lawsuit in court, the decision of which must be made within a month.

According to the newspaper Algemeen Dagblad, the court is unlikely to be able to take such a decision, because in the Netherlands there is no legal mechanism that would allow a citizen to officially change their age.

It is noted that the reason for such a decision of the pensioner was the difficulty of finding a relationship in Tinder.
