Sensational news from Vienna:
The Constitutional Court in Austria has ruled a number of corona measures are unconstitutional. According to the Court, there is insufficient evidence that the measures are justified, proportionate or necessary.
This concerns the following measures: access ban for restaurants and car washes, restrictions on the number of visitors in restaurants (four adults who do not belong to the same household), a ban on gatherings of more than 10 people and a masking obligation in public indoor areas.
Thanks to the verdict, Austrian entrepreneurs have the opportunity to sue the state and demand damages. The measures have been challenged by the Anwälte für Grundrechte (the lawyers for fundamental rights). In the video below, Dr. Michael Brunner, one of the lawyers, speaks to the channel #honkforhope.
