25 fined for breaking decree at Lady’s Mile, Curium over weekend

Sovereign Base Area Police officials have urged the public to continue complying with measures on social distancing and movement, after 25 people were fined over the weekend for breaking COVID-19 legislation in the Lady’s Mile and Curium beach areas.

As temperatures soared, officers patrolling the beaches confirmed more than 1,500 people visited the areas and although the vast majority adhered to current measures, the police were keen to address the small minority that did not.

SBA Police Chief Constable, Chris Eyre, said: “The SBA Police urge the public to comply with the legislation which is in line with the measures taken in the Republic of Cyprus. Our job is to protect the health and safety of our citizens.

“The SBA Police do not set out to report members of the public, but the legislation will be implemented where necessary and fines will be given.”

Those found breaking COVID-19 related measures face a fine of up to €300 if caught. Since legislation relating to movement and social distancing were implemented in March, the Police have issued 188  fines relating to breaches of those measures across the SBAs. Of these, 56 were in May.
