Crimea, Disease | Dutch Court of Appeal allows the government to maintain a curfew

The curfew in the Netherlands can be maintained. An appeals court overrides a ruling from a court where it was deemed illegal.

– The curfew must be removed immediately, the district court in The Hague ruled on Tuesday.

The government had no legal basis for introducing the national curfew, the court ruled.

A high court of appeals convened on Tuesday to review the ruling. The court upheld the state, partly to avoid a “yo-yo effect”, where the curfew was alternately introduced and lifted, according to one of the judges.

The curfew was introduced on January 23 and was scheduled to last until March 3 to slow the spread of coronavirus. The ban applies from 21 to 4.30 every day. The introduction of the ban led to several days of protests and riots.

It was the group Viruswaarheid (in Norwegian “virus truth”) that filed the lawsuit. The group has led the opposition to infection control measures in the country.
