The court is of the opinion that under the circumstances of the exponential growth in the number of coronavirus infections, the government has reasonably chosen to set the (second) curfew. The curfew cannot be considered disproportionate under these circumstances.
The two suspects who were brought before the court for violating the curfew were sentenced by the court to community service and a fine of 1000 guilders respectively. As we know, the Public Prosecutor's Office had a different point of view, but the judge did not agree. Now that the judge is of the opinion that the curfew was correctly set, the Public Prosecution Service makes an urgent appeal to persons who still have a fine outstanding for not keeping to the times of the curfew, to pay it as soon as possible. This concerns persons who have been offered a transaction (fine) for violation of curfew in the period from August 28, 2020, to October 22, 2020.
