Due to the government’s new so-called pandemic law, the Public Prosecutor proposes that violations of the new law should be able to result in a fine of SEK 2,000.
This applies to private individuals, who, for example, walk in a park.
“The regulations may concern a ban on staying in certain places (parks, bathing places, etc.) and a ban on gathering in groups of a certain size. People who violate the regulations can be sentenced to fines,” the Public Prosecutor writes in a press release.
This is a fine, which is a fine that can be issued by the police directly on the spot. An approved fine is equated with a judgment that has gained legal force.
– The amount should be high enough to signal that the infringement is serious. At the same time, criminal liability will affect young people aged 15–18, who normally have lower penalties than adults. It is also the case that an infringement can involve both a risk of a large spread of infection and no risk of the spread of infection at all. Our overall assessment is that SEK 2,000 is an appropriate level. In more serious cases of the spread of infection, it is possible to use other legislation, such as causing illness according to the third chapter of the Criminal Code, says the public prosecutor Petra Lundh.
The proposal will now be referred to the relevant authorities, but a preliminary decision can be made as early as 18 January and the new fines will enter into force on 27 January.
