TSJCV authorizes curfew in 68 Valencian municipalities.
The Superior Court (TSJCV) of the Valencian Community has authorised the curfew in 68 municipalities, as well as a limit of 10 persons in social and family gatherings
The Superior Court of Justice of the Valencian Community (TSJCV) has today, Friday, August 13, authorised the restriction of movement – curfew – between 1am and 6am, as well as limiting social and family gatherings to a maximum of 10 people, in 68 towns with more than 5,000 inhabitants that present a higher epidemiological risk.
As reported by the high court, 32 of these towns are from the province of Valencia, 27 from Alicante, and 9 municipalities belonging to Castellon, with the measures effective from August 17 until September 6, according to the brief presented to the Court this Wednesday, August 10, by the Conselleria de Sanidad Universal.
The Chamber considered that the adoption of the requested measures of control are “still necessary”, based on the proportionality criterion, and added that, “there is no more moderate measure with the same efficiency that achieves the purpose of limiting the so-called ‘bottles ‘and crowds of people”, adding that the same logic applies to the limiting of social gatherings, which involve “the largest epidemic outbreaks, and which affect not only young people, but all members of the group”.
