Andalucia has request for mandatory vaccination of health workers suspended by the TSJA.
The Superior Tribune of Justice of Andalucia (TSJA) has suspended- as a precaution- a request from the Liberum association, a division of the Ministry of Health, that imposed diagnostic tests of active infection (PDIA) on health workers or social health centres not be made mandatory.
The Andalucian high court, which is based in Granada, has agreed that the Junta de Andalucía and the Public Prosecutor’s Office will wait for a period of three days, after which, it will issue a decision on whether to enforce mandatory testing on all care workers in the region.
The group said that it considers that the order of the Junta de Andalucía is “discriminatory, lacking legal basis and scientific evidence” for imposing on a part of the population that they must undergo a PCR test to access their jobs.
“Actually turning the measure into a form of corporal punishment for those workers who for various reasons, for the moment, have decided not to inoculate the experimental treatment,” argued a spokesman forLiberum.
“They lack scientific basis, and consequently, they represent a coercion or threat that forces them to undergo invasive treatment to avoid reprisals, seriously damaging human and fundamental rights,” he added.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
