A Venezuelan couple has been fined 8400 bolivars (R12 900) for getting a bit too frisky inside their car.
The case has rankled Venezuelans, inhabitants of one of the world's most crime-ridden countries, who grouse that the time and effort spent prosecuting the pair might have been put to better use catching thieves and robbers.
The case stems from a romantic interlude in November of last year, when the couple steamed up the windows of their Chevy Malibu at a park in northwestern Zulia state, authorities said.
According to a statement, the lovers were charged by observent police with engaging in “indecent acts.”
Municipal prosecutor Daniel Alvarado took the case to court.
