A group of citizens in Catania have been fined by the local police for illegally using a tree as a rubbish dump. Undercover officers caught them in the act of throwing garbage bags onto the tree as if they were its fruits. The individuals involved have been fined €330 each. The mayor, Enrico Trantino, described this behavior as a symbol of complete disregard for public spaces. He vowed to continue enforcing regulations and isolating those who engage in unacceptable behavior.
