(ANSA) – MADRID, JUL 27 – Spanish justice has denied the Canarian regional government authorization to impose a curfew on the island of Tenerife as a measure to curb covid infections. This is learned from a press release from the supervisory body of the Spanish judiciary.
The decision announced today was adopted by the Supreme Court, which rejected the appeal filed by the Canary Islands government against a resolution already adopted by the regional court.
According to the high court, the request for application of the curfew was not sufficiently justified in the case of Tenerife, currently declared in an epidemiological situation of maximum alert.
The curfew is instead in force in dozens of municipalities in other Spanish regions, for example in Catalonia and in the Valencian Community. According to the Supreme Court, in those cases the competent administrations presented sufficient arguments to justice to be able to authorize this restriction of individual freedom. (HANDLE).
