Greta Thunberg was found guilty of disobeying police during a climate protest in Malmö, Sweden, and ordered to pay a little over €200 in fines.
Thunberg appeared at Malmö District Court on Monday morning, facing a charge of disobeying law enforcement, Swedish news outlets reported. The charge dates from 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 detained those who refused — including Thunberg.
At the hearing, Thunberg admitted that she refused to obey the police order, but denied committing a crime, reported Swedish outlet Dagens Nyheter.
“I think we are in an emergency,” she told the court. “There is a climate crisis that threatens life, health and property.”
Thunberg was fined 50 Swedish krona — €4.33 — a day for 30 days, for a total of €129.90, in addition to paying 1,000 krona — €86 — to the Crime Victim Fund, Swedish news outlets reported.
