Romania attempts to tax witches and fortune tellers

Proposals to tax witches and fortune tellers in Romania were voted down by senators.

The politicians who had drafted the new law claim it is because they feared they would be cursed if they passed the plans.
Alin Popoviciu and Cristi Dugulescu of the ruling Democratic Liberal Party drafted a law where witches and fortune tellers would have to produce receipts, and would also be held liable for wrong predictions.

Maria Campina, a well-known Romanian witch, said that it was difficult to tax thousands of fortune tellers and witches partly because of the erratic sums of money they received.
It’s unclear whether there will be an attempt to redraft the law in Romania.
