Regime military checkpoints levy illegal fines on those who violate  curfew in eastern Ghouta

Civil sources have informed the Syrian Observatory that the military checkpoints of regime forces stationed near the cities and towns of Eastern Ghouta, have imposed illegal fines on those who violate the   curfew’s decision imposed by the Syrian regime as part of preventive measures to tackle Coronavirus.

According to Observatory sources, illegal fines imposed on violators of recent decisions are used as an alternative, instead of transferring people to civilian police stations, and referring them to the penalty courts to regulate the punishment imposed under the curfew law, which provides for the offender to be sentenced to imprisonment from 3 to 6 months, and a fine of 50 to 300,000 Syrian pounds.

Regime’s security patrols have also imposed illegal taxes on some shops opening during the curfew for turning a blind eye to their violation of the curfew’s decision.
