(ANSA) – LIVORNO, FEB 24 – A 37-year-old man from Cecina near
Livorno on the southern Tuscan coast has earned over 640,00
euros in online betting in the last three years while also
recently getting the government’s ‘citizenship wage’ basic
income for those near the poverty line, tax police said
    The man has allegedly not declared any of his winnings despite
getting the welfare benefit to the tune of 5,690 euros in 2019
and 2020, they said.
    He has also allegedly failed to declare income of 22,500 euros
from a portion of a flat that was sold.
    The man has been cited for “unduly receiving the basic income,”
the guardia di finanza said.
    Critics say the basic income, a flagship policy of the
anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S), has been open to
widespread fraud. (ANSA).
