Woman wins court case to evict sons from home, calls them 'parasites'
PTC News Desk: A 75-year-old mother in Italy wanted her two adult children, one 42 and the other 40, to leave her home and live independently. She repeatedly asked them to live on their own, but they refused. So she took them to court and obtained a legal order requiring them to leave her home.
According to the Italian news agency ANSA, the 75-year-old mother, who lives in Pavia, northern Italy, made numerous attempts to persuade her adult sons to find their own housing, especially since they both have jobs. Her sons, on the other hand, refused to leave. When they refused, she went to court, and Judge Simona Caterbi ruled in her favour. The judge ordered the two children to leave their mother's home by December 18th.
According to the Italian news portal, the mother was also frustrated because her two sons refused to help pay for household expenses and were unwilling to help with household chores. Because her efforts to persuade them to start their own lives were futile, she chose to evict them through the courts.
According to CNN, the two sons, who their mother described in court papers as "parasites," had been living in the family apartment without contributing any help, according to the complaint filed by the woman, who has not been named, in the Tribunal of Pavia district court.
According to Tuesday's court ruling, seen by CNN, Judge Simona Caterbi sided with the retired mother, who is separated from the men's father and whose pension went entirely on food and home maintenance, ruling that the two "bamboccioni," or big babies, have until December 18 to vacate the premises.
