Norway to ban aiding beggars in new law
thelocal.no Anyone helping homeless people by offering them travel money, shelter or food could face up to a year in prison according to the draft of a new anti-begging law put out for consultation in Norway. The scope of the law, which was originally intended to ban homeless people from begging on the street, has been extended to also criminalise those offering money or other help, alarming many in Oslo who believe they risk being charged simply for helping less fortunate people. Inger Husby, from the Oslo suburb of Bøler, who frequently invites homeless people into her house, told NRK that she feared that her altruistic acts could also be deemed illegal should the bill pass as it is. “They have stayed here several times. I give a packed lunch to those here in Bøler, and I fill their cups with cocoa. I wash their clothes when they need it and they come over for dinner once in a while.” “I think I would become even more eager to help," she said of how she would react if the law came into force. "To me, it doesn’t sound possible to punish people who are helping others who are in trouble and who are poor.”
