The Canary Islands are planning to not to appeal the suspension of the curfew
The vice president of the Canary Islands Government, Román Rodríguez, announced yesterday (Tuesday) that the regional Government is looking at all options, including not appealing to the Supreme Court regarding the curfew since, he said, it will more than likely be "a resounding no" to the maintenance of this measure.
In statements to Radio Canarias, Rodríguez explained that the legal department are preparing a resource to recover the perimeter closure when it is above alert level 2, but that in principle the Government, which will meet today to make a decision, is considering not appealing the abolition of the curfew, as decided by the Superior Court of Justice.
Rodríguez pointed out that they have declined most of the appeals presented by the autonomous communities regarding curfew given that, as the court orders indicate, it is not legally justified without the state of alarm in place.
When the state of alarm ended on Sunday, the Government of the Canary Islands decided to maintain the restrictive measures to contain the spread of the Covid 19 pandemic, and thus transmitted it to the Superior Court of Justice (TSJC) which determined that there was no place for its validity, the curfew was lifted from Monday night.
The Governing Council will study the appeals that it will present to the Supreme Court on the three abolished measures: the curfew, the control of mobility and the perimeter closure, and make a decision from there.
