Italy murder trial halted after judge spots staff having sex

A trial in Italy had to be suspended after the

judge and jury spotted a pair of court

employees having sex in an adjoining room,

behind a frosted glass window.

The couple were in a small room adjoining the

gallery of the courtroom in Genoa and clearly

thought they could not be seen.

But at one point during the hearing, the judge

cast his gaze upwards and noticed their

silhouettes, clearly visible behind the frosted glass.

Their discovery caused a commotion in court

and forced a suspension of the trial of a

Romanian man accused of murdering a 40-

year-old Moroccan homeless immigrant in

gardens next to a railway station last year.

The judge despatched a court official to confront the lovers.

The couple, one of whom was thought to be

married, may be subjected to disciplinary


The steamy courtroom encounter happened on

April 28 but only came to light on Tuesday.

The Italian court system is unusually quiet at

that time of year because many magistrates

and officials take advantage of a series of

public holidays to take off a week or more.

It seemed the couple were taking advantage of

that and did not expect to be found out.
