Identity Theft of a unique kind
It is a case of a 33 years old woman hiding successfully albeit for a temporary period of four months as that of a 13 years old boy.
The motive of Barobora Skrlova behind posing as a boy, naming herself as Adam, was to hide herself from the Czech authorities to avoid testifying in a 2007 child abuse case.
Ironically, the sinister came to limelight when the search for a 13-year old Czech boy who did not really exist reported missing from a children home that had exposed the truth.
It all started when the real Skrlova under the false name of Adam enrolled herself in September, 007 as Marienlyst School near Oslo. She was introduced as her son by an unidentified woman who produced a Chec Passport. Skrlova concealed her real identity by shaving the head and bounding her breasts. Nearly for four months she had fooled her teachers, children home workers and Police in her identity as that of Adam only finally to end in Prison. The authorities had deported her back to Czech wherein she has been detained.
