The Constitutional Court of Spain has suspended a law ratified by the authorities of the Galician region, which obliged its residents to be vaccinated against Covid-19, the French Agency reports, citing judicial sources.

The precautionary suspension came after the government filed a lawsuit against a law in this region in northwestern Spain, which provided for fines of up to 3,000 euros in the event of unjustified refusal of coronavirus vaccination.

Vaccination against Covid-19 is not mandatory in Spain, but Galicia was an exception to this obligation, which was set at the end of February.

According to judicial sources, the appeal was accepted, leading to the suspension of articles of the law challenged by the central government, which distinguishes the “restriction of fundamental rights” in certain parts of the law.

Judges now have five months to consider the substance of the case and reach a final decision. During this period precautionary suspension will remain in force.

It is becoming increasingly clear that compulsory vaccination cannot be legally justified in any state as it violates fundamental human rights. That is why governments are trying with “indirect” methods to force citizens to get vaccinated.

As the narrative of Covid’s tragedy deflates worldwide, so will the jurisdiction of governments to enforce mandatory restrictive measures.
