Greta Thunberg was found guilty of disobeying the police at a climate protest in Malmö, Sweden and ordered to pay just over 200 euros in fines.
Thunberg appeared before the Malmö District Court on Monday morning, accused of disobeying law enforcement, Swedish news reports reported. The accusation dates back to June 19, when Thunberg and a dozen other protesters held a demonstration in the Swedish city, blocking the road to the oil port.
Police reportedly ordered protesters to move and arrested those who refused, including Thunberg.
At the hearing, Thunberg admitted that she refused to obey the police order but denied having committed a crime, Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter reported.
« I think we are in an emergency, » he said said the court. « There is a climate crisis threatening life, health and property. »
Thunberg was fined SEK 50 — €4.33 — per day for 30 days, totaling €129.90, as well as paying SEK 1,000 — €86 — to the Crime Victim Fund, Swedish news outlets reported.
