Fortune-Telling Witches Face Spells In Jail

News Source :  Sky News


Witches in Romania could receive a spell in jail or a fine if they make incorrect fortune telling predictions.

Politicians are debating a draft bill which will require witches to apply for a permit and be judged on their accuracy.

They will also be required to provide receipts for their customers and will be prevented from carrying out their work near churches and schools. The country changed its labour laws at the start of this year in order to recognise witchcraft as a profession. Witches were unhappy with the change of law because it meant they had to pay income tax. In response they cast spells on the country's president and government. Witchcraft has been part of Romanian culture for centuries and still plays a role in modern society.
