Coronavirus: Paphos court fines five people €1,980 for violating movement curb

The Paphos district court has ordered five people to pay a total of €1,980 for violating the decree on the restriction of movement.

Four were fined €400 each and the fifth €380. They were ordered to pay the money immediately.

None of them had a permit to leave their home or carried an ID card, the court found.

The on-the-spot fine for violating the restrictions is €300 but authorities have left it up to the discretion of police officers to decide when to take it further and haul someone before the court.

On Monday it was reported that 13 complaints have already been filed against police by members of the public who say they overstepped their authority during checks.
