Saxony-Anhalt: AfD parliamentary group fails with amnesty initiative in parliament

Magdeburg (dpa/sa) - The state parliament of Saxony-Anhalt has rejected by a large majority the AfD's demand that ongoing criminal and fine proceedings in connection with violations of corona requirements should no longer be pursued.

In the debate, Justice Minister Franziska Weidinger (CDU) said on Thursday that an amnesty law would be "a completely wrong signal" for all those who had followed the Corona rules. The measures have always been adapted to the Corona situation. "In view of the enormous threat situation, many of these regulations had to be subject to fines and infringements sanctioned in order to give them the validity required to avert existential dangers."

Hans-Thomas Tillschneider (AfD) clearly criticized the sanctions. Those affected would be harassed because of trifles, he said with a view to proceedings against innkeepers for violations of test requirements and violations of the mask requirement. In addition, the courts are overburdened with the processing of cases. In addition, the public is increasingly realizing that the measures were disproportionate, according to Tillschneider.
