The tourist accused of carving names into Rome’s Colosseum claims ignorance of the monument’s antiquity.

The tourist who was filmed carving his name into a wall at Rome’s 2,000-year-old Colosseum in late June said he had sent a letter of apology to the local prosecutor’s office.

The charge against the culprit…
Dimitrov was allegedly caught on video scrawling “Ivan+Haley 23” on a brick wall of one of the world’s most valuable buildings last week by the alleged perpetrator. His lawyer, Alessandro Maria Tirelli, said in his later apology letter, “I admit with great shame that I learned about the antiquity of the monument only after something unfortunate happened.” But the prosecutor’s office is still not sure that the letter was received.

The lawyer stated that the letter was also sent to the Rome City Council, but was rejected by the Rome Mayor’s office.

Grounds for prosecution….
The lawyer has confirmed that the tourist is being investigated by the country’s prosecutor’s office for damaging cultural property in Rome and has informed them that they are also hoping for a plea bargain.
