no curfews or closings

Less than 12 hours before the definitive suspension of the state of alarm, the Superior Courts of the different autonomous communities have issued their resolutions regarding the restrictions that will be maintained or modified in their territories. The proposals of the autonomous governments have sought the approval of the judges, several of whom have rejected them, leading to the fact that several of the measures in force so far in their communities will not be applied, at least temporarily.

Experts in Administrative and Constitutional Law have criticized the fact that jurisdictional bodies are held responsible for adopting measures that affect fundamental rights that are “inappropriate” for them in a conference held this Friday at the Madrid Bar Association (ICAM) and organized by the Section of Administrative Law with the collaboration of the Association of Communicators and Legal Informants (ACIJUR). The jurists consider that such competences should correspond to the administration in matters of health policy. In any case, the Supreme Court will have the last word if the governments decide to appeal the first rulings.

Madrid’s community

The regional government of Isabel Díaz Ayuso will lift the curfew and the prohibition of meetings in homes with non-cohabitants and will extend the hours of bars and restaurants by one hour (until 00:00 hours, with 50% of the capacity indoors and 75 % abroad) and shops (until 11:00 pm). If it had wanted to maintain the restrictions, the Superior Court of Justice of Madrid would have to have ratified the decision. In the case of social gatherings, a maximum of six people is recommended and that only the cohabitants meet at home.

The Superior Court of Justice of the Valencian Community (TSJCV) has approved the extension of the limitations to night mobility and capacity in meetings and places of worship since the end of the alarm state until May 24, instead of the 30 of the same month, as requested by the administration. The magistrates of the Fourth Section of the Contentious-Administrative Chamber have decided that the continuation or future relaxation of these measures will depend on the evolution of the pandemic and the rate of vaccination
