Big Court Decision Is Permissible To a Steal

Italy’s highest court legalizes theft of small quantities of food when it is urgently needed the decision was made during the case of a homeless man named Roman Ostryakov. In 2011 the boy was caught stealing a cheese from the Geneva supermarket. Ostyakov stole goods worth US $ 50. The food was hidden under his jacket when he paid for his bread. He was arrested when a customer reported security for a store theft.
He was found guilty in 2013 and sentenced to six months in prison. This week, the Supreme Court of Constitution dismissed the verdict in Austryakov’s case and ruled it out.
It is not a crime to steal small amounts of food to prevent hunger. The decision of the court in Italy has been widely welcomed. People call it an act of humanity. This is meaningful when a large proportion of the population is trapped in poverty. In recent years the number of citizens has increased dramatically in the economic crisis
The elderly, in particular, were forced to steal in supermarkets to eliminate it, said Carlo Renzi, president of Kodakins’ consumer rights group, that the Supreme Court has established a sacred principle. The petty theft due to hunger is not comparable to any crime because the need for feeding justifies this fact.
