Monk arrested for giving away cash
A novice monk was arrested in Germany after he tried to give away money as part of his religious training.
Shoppers raised the alarm when 37-year-old Daniel Weiss stood in a shopping centre giving away 50 Euro notes and blessing people in Goettingen.
Police let him off after they had checked to see if the notes were forgeries.
We don’t know what religion this monk was from. Does any ‘religious training’ really involve giving away money in this manner? Still, it is amusing that authorities assume he is doing something criminal…
