“The curfew is not a goal, but a means,” says Rutte. “A means to keep the corona virus under control as much as possible.” The drug is heavy, but has an effect, says Rutte. According to the prime minister, the measure has resulted in 10 percent less contamination. The ruling of the preliminary relief judge is therefore ‘a legal setback’. Rutte has no substantiation for the percentage other than an estimate by the OMT before the curfew was introduced.

The preliminary relief judge in The Hague put an end to the curfew on Tuesday morning. The measure must be lifted immediately because the cabinet has used the wrong law to introduce it quickly, according to the judge. The cabinet is appealing against it and wants the curfew to remain in place in the meantime.

“But if that doesn’t work, I urge everyone to adhere to the curfew. It is very important to limit our social contacts as much as possible. ”

Urgent law

In the meantime, the cabinet is still coming up with an urgent law to lay down the curfew. The government maintains that there is a legal basis for the curfew. The new law would therefore be ‘superfluous’, emphasizes Minister Grapperhaus (Justice and Security). According to the minister, declaring a state of emergency is not an option.

The court in The Hague will consider this so-called suspension incident at 4 p.m. The appeal against the judgment of the judge itself will be heard at another time as soon as possible, according to the court. The Ministry of Justice confirms that the State is appealing, but cannot say anything more about the case.
