Pandemic: Constitutional judge: Corona curfew was unlawful

During the Corona pandemic, a large number of regulations were issued by the Thuringian state government. The AfD has filed a lawsuit – now a decision by the Constitutional Court has been made.

Thuringia’s constitutional judges have declared the extension of a night-time curfew during the Corona period to be unconstitutional.

The state regulation from January 2022 affected all people who had not been vaccinated or had recovered from an infection. The regulation, which was attacked by the Thuringian AfD parliamentary group and which, among other things, extended night-time curfews, did not meet the formal requirements, the constitutional judges decided on Wednesday in Weimar. In addition, they were also unconstitutional because they violated the fundamental right to physical freedom of movement.

This decision only applies to the period of validity of the regulation from January 21 to February 6, 2022 and not to the entire period of the corona pandemic, a court spokeswoman informed.

The AfD parliamentary group had called for the ordinance of January 21, 2022 to be reviewed. Among other things, this concerned the admissibility of the access, contact and exit restrictions imposed at the time on people who were not vaccinated or had not recovered. On other points, the Constitutional Court rejected the AfD’s application for judicial review as inadmissible.
