Security forces have arrested 69 people for the crime of disobedience since the beginning of the state of emergency, on March 22.

In the same period, according to a balance sheet released in a statement and with data until 18:00 29 March, 1,509 establishments were closed due to non-compliance with the established rules.

The data released does not include road inspection operations, or others, carried out throughout the day.

The arrests were due in particular to the obligation of compulsory confinement and to "other situations of disobedience or resistance".

The Government recalls that the security forces intensified, as of yesterday, the road inspection, during the weekend and throughout the Easter period. And he also recalls that only citizens who do so are allowed to travel under the exceptions provided for in the general duty of collection.

GNR and PSP, within the scope of the state of emergency, have carried out awareness, surveillance and inspection actions.

MAI, “in view of the imperative need for everyone to contribute to curb the contagion of covid-19, insists on strict compliance with the measures imposed by the state of emergency”, says the statement, in which it calls for people to only leave home for what is strictly necessary.
