Siding with activists, the Hague court ruled that the COVID-19 pandemic curfew imposed by the Dutch government infringes upon its people’s rights. The court asked the Dutch government to immediately reverse the curfew, stating that it has no legal basis. The curfew required people to stay home between 9:00 pm and 4:30 am, and was implemented on January 23. Those who left their homes during these hours faced hefty fines, but the court has ruled that the curfew is “illegitimate.”

Similarly in Canada, the federal government has faced backlash for its handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly that of lockdown measures and stay-at-home orders.

The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms stated earlier this month that it intends to sue the federal government for forcing Canadians to quarantine in hotels upon returning from travel. They are also handling cases of Canadians who believe their Charter of Rights and Freedoms has been infringed upon due to lockdown and stay-at-home measures.
