Editor's Comment: - That's the headline as it appeared in La Critica) A bill that sets new fines of between $50 to $5,000 dollars for disposing of waste in any public place, or waste which should be placed in plastic bags, tanks, baskets or other containers for refuse collection purposes was proposed by National Assembly Deputy from the People's Party (PP), Irene Gallego. The fines would be applied to any person who scratches walls of and public or private buildings, as well as those who deposit human or animal feces in public places. In all cases, the offender would not only be required to pay the fine, but would also be made to clean the affected area. If the offender is a minor, the parents or guardians would be responsible for the fine. In the case of pets, both the owner and the person responsible for the custody of the animal are collectively responsible. (La Critica)
