TRNC authorities upgrades punishment for anyone found violating curfew

Anyone found to have violated the curfew order in North Cyprus will be sent to prison for one year or made to pay 10% of the minimum wage or both.

The new decree was issued by the TRNC Council of Ministers on Friday. The new decree imposed additional penalties for those who did not comply with the curfew.

According to the Decree in the Force of Law, those who do not comply with the Curfew can be sentenced to up to one year in prison or pay up to 10% (ten percent) of the minimum wage or both.

The description is as follows;

As it is known, the Curfew Order (156) entered into force on 31.3.2020, based on the authority granted by the Council of Ministers in order to protect the public from the Coronavirus (Covid-19), which has spread all over the world and is also seen in our country.
However, given the seriousness and urgency of the situation we are in, it is seen that the Crime and Penalties article of the Curfew Law in question needs to be updated.In this context, the Council of Ministers issued a decree under the Special Powers Law in order to amend the sentence set out in Article 156 of the Curfew.
With the Decree in Force of Law, it is aimed to change the financial penalty equal to the minimum wage by 10% (ten percent) of the Article of Curfews and Penalties, as long as the Curfew Act remains in effect.
According to the Decree under the Special Powers Law, any person who acts in contravention of the Rules of Curfew in accordance with Article 2 of the Curfew Act will commit a crime and receive up to one year imprisonment or a fine of up to 10% (ten percent) of the minimum wage or both.
