The boy from Boortmeerbeek can now finish his studies in Belgium. That was the Report according to the Secretary of State for Asylum and Migration, Maggie De Block (Open VLD).
“After a long conversation with the Director-General of the Immigration Department, Freddy Rose Mont, we decided it would be best for Scott to be allowed to finish his studies in Belgium, given his special situation and his file,” said De Block.

The boy is the leader of the capons at the scouts in Boortmeerbeek. A position he has held for the past two years. Scott was picked up from the Merksplas by his step-parents.
