Thuringia’s constitutional judges have declared the extension of a night-time curfew during the Corona period to be unconstitutional. The state ordinance from January 2022 affected all people who had not been vaccinated or recovered from an infection.

The regulation attacked by the Thuringian AfD faction, which at the time extended night-time curfews, among other things, did not meet the formal requirements, the constitutional judges decided on Wednesday in Weimar. In addition, they were unconstitutional because they violated the basic right to physical freedom of movement.

Decision not applicable to entire Corona period

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.
