Woman fined for laughing
German authorities have fined a woman for laughing too loudly.
Officials in Berlin took action against the 47-year-old, named only as Barbara M in court papers, when her neighbour complained she was disturbing the peace through her giggling.
The 52-year-old neighbour who was also not named but lives with his elderly mother said his noisy neighbour frequently invited people round where they would laugh the night away.
“It is against the law in Germany to make too much noise after 10pm,” he complained.
