Police arrested 5 beggars in Vienna

“It is more blessed to give than to receive”, is an old sentence from the bible. The Viennese police is not impressed about such sententiously quotes from ancient compositions. Last weekend they arrested 5 people from Romania who wanted to earn some money with begging.

Austrias Broadcasting Corporation reports that most of the beggars were old and disabled. They lived in small apartments under inhumane conditions. Sometimes more than 40 people lodged in one small single apartment. In this case 11 people were also arrested in Romania. They tried to recruit new beggars for the streets of Vienna. All of them have to expect a trial in Romania. The 5 in Vienna arrested beggars have to return home.
