‘No matter what I find, I always return it’: homeless man finds wallet with 2,000 euros in cash and takes it straight to police

In exchange, the police gave him a voucher for 50 euros.

A good deed not necessarily well paid.

A 33-year-old homeless man has the habit of searching carriages in central stationAmsterdam (Pays-Bas). His main objective: to find plastic bottles which he then exchanges for money.

But that day, Hadjer Al-Ali didn’t just find plastic: under a seat, a wallet containing 2000 euros in liquid.

A coupon

No identity paper, no information to locate the owner: after 18 months spent on the street, Hadjer could very well have kept the money for himself. But “no matter what I find, I always return it”he says in comments reported by BFM TV.

So, head to the police station. “As we believe that honesty must pay, he received a thumbs-up prize in money that we sometimes award to citizens, with a gift voucher worth 50 euros”proudly say the authorities cited by our colleagues.

If no one comes to claim the money within a year, it will return to Hadjer. The homeless man hopes for another outcome: “Maybe the owner has a business and can provide me with a job, or a place I could live in. You never know.”
