Honest Immigrant Returns Wallet, Refuses Reward

SourceBBC NEWS

A young man who found a wallet containing €2,000 (£1770; $2200) in cash on the street in Rome refused a reward after returning it to its owner.

Mossan Rasal, a 23-year-old Bangladeshi citizen, went directly to the police after spotting the item on the pavement in the Italian capital on Friday.

It was then arranged for the owner to collect the wallet from Mr Rasal.

He was thanked for his honesty but said “I did not do anything exceptional,” adding: “That money wasn’t mine.”

“I didn’t know the amount because I didn’t count it, I just took everything to the [police] station,” Mr Rasal told Italian daily La Repubblica on Sunday.

“It was about being honest, as my family taught me to be,” he added.

The wallet also contained several credit cards, a driver’s license and personal identification papers, police said.

Mr Rasal, who runs a small stall in central Rome, has been living in the city for seven years. He said that he would be happy if the owner of the wallet, a local businessman, now visited his stall and became a regular customer.
