German police charges family of 13-year old student €45,000 for fake amok call

After a then 13-year-old student from Hamburg called in an attack by cell phone to a school, the police responded with a massive operation to evacuate the school and surrounding area. The police now charged the parents for the costs of the operation that resulted from the fake threat.

The police stated that "We are legally obliged to charge the costs of the operation and have sent the person responsible for the operation a bill for 45,000 euros".

According to the police, however, the student does not have to fear any consequences under criminals he is not yet of criminal age.
