Emile Ratelband, 69, answers journalists’ questions on December 3, 2018 in Amsterdam, following the court’s ruling regarding his legal bid to slash 20 years off his age. – The Amsterdam court rejected Ratelbands request in a case that drew worldwide attention. Ratelband went to court last month, arguing that he didnt feel 69 and saying his request was consistent with other forms of personal transformation which are gaining acceptance in the Netherlands and around the world, such as the ability to change ones name or gender.
