Definitely wrong. I didn't think family could inherit debt but I'm not sure how it works with minors.
They do this in Japan however if you commit suicide by jumping in front of a train as it causes delays.

If I were that family I would challenge that. But I can understand how they might not be able to organise a challenge in their grief. Outrageous. I would love to see the exact provision they were fined under. If legally it is sound I would still think there is a good chance for waiving it on compassionate grounds, which many agencies/councils will do.
Still, it is shocking they are made to deal with this on top of their tragedy.

That's so disgusting. I'd be furious - I couldn't even imagine what that poor family is going through.
There's no way they should have to pay and I can't imagine a council that would make them pay of it was challenged.

No, they should not have to pay the fine. Stuff the law, it is just so heartless to try to make them pay up.

It's utterly ridiculous.
It sounds like a news story waiting to happen - and then the update would be from the council who imposed the fine saying, "It was a clerical error and we aplogise..." blah blah after everyone goes on about what heartless jerks they are. Laws are gotten around all the time depending on circumstance.

Absolutely not. That is disgraceful that they're being forced to pay it.

while I appreciate that the law is there for a reason - I cant imagine its easy to police ...
The family have lost a child ... in a very unfortunate way ... I'm sure they are already financially stressed about the costs of a funeral, and sorting out the teenagers paperwork/ finances .. they hardly need this stress on top of it all ..
legally its probably right .. morally its wrong . .
