The Government appeals to the Supreme Court for the level 3 and 4 curfew with ‘high hopes’
The official spokesman of the Canary Islands Government, Julio Pérez, has confirmed this morning that the order preventing him from decreeing a curfew in the islands with the most infections will be presented "with great hope" before the Supreme Court.
In statements to the media, he defended the curfew at levels 3 and 4 because there are "strong arguments that it is a measure proportional to the danger of increased infections that are particularly being registered in Tenerife”.
He explained that the curfew has a "relatively limited” impact on the economy and normal life as commercial businesses are closed before it is proposed to apply at 00.30h, which is why the regional government has high hopes that the Supreme Court will endorse this proposal, on which it has insisted that it is "proportional".
The epidemiological reports are attached to the writ of cassation so that the Supreme Court will find it easier to verify the data on contagion and hospital pressure, said Pérez, who believes that to contain the spread of Covid the curfew is "much more effective than any other tool they have”, especially for the control of botellons.
