Italian police crack down on ‘poor’ Rome students


ROME: A crackdown on students in Rome claiming poverty to pay fewer fees and access subsidies found many with lavish bank accounts, hidden revenues and even one whose father owned a Ferrari, police said on Thursday (Friday in Manila). In a statement, police noted that 84 percent of the 196,000 students in Rome said they and their families were too poor to afford university, giving them cutbacks on fees, transport subsidies and food coupons.
