Permits in everything, Christmas edition

This page in:

Apparently, Moldovan police have "arrested" a Christmas tree intended for Chisinau's main square. Why, you ask? It did not have the appropriate permits:

Moldovan police have demanded that the driver of a vehicle carrying the city government’s Christmas tree to the main square, produce a license to purchase fir trees as well as a permit from the State Environmental Inspectorate... Representatives of the country’s Forest Management Association, however, say there is no need for such a permit in this case. But police detained the vehicle nonetheless and then said the fir tree is ‘under arrest’.
