This morning, the Public Prosecutor’s proposal of SEK 2,000 was fined for people who violate the new pandemic law.
This may even be relevant for those who violate a ban on staying in a park.
A couple of thousand kronor can seem like a lot, but Linda Snecker (V) wants to see a fine based on income, so that the “upper class” can pay more.
“Fines should always be given according to income, otherwise there is no equality before the law. SEK 2,000 for a champagne picnic on Östermalm shrugs the upper class on the shoulders”, she writes on Twitter.
The problem with that reasoning is that such fines could not be imposed by the police on the spot, answers a prosecutor in the comments field:
“There is an aspect in that the current system does not allow the police to issue income-based fines. Then the police can not issue fines on the spot.”
