Came recently across an article @ Diario de Fuerteventura:


Breaking the state of alarm: from a fine of 100 to 600,000 euros to prison terms

Failure to comply with the measures included in the decree that declares the state of alarm in the face of the health crisis caused by the Coronavirus can lead to citizens from fines of 100 euros to three months in prison for a crime of disobedience and four years for attack on authority.

The list of sanctions handled by State security forces and bodies and to which Efe has had access rests on four standards: the Citizen Security Law, known as the 'gag law'; that of public health, that of civil protection and the Penal Code.

Those who fail to comply with the established measures may face, for example, penalties of between 100 and 600 euros for removing a fence or seal, up to 30,000 euros for refusing to identify themselves to an agent or up to 60,000 for conduct that seriously jeopardizes health of the population.

The crime of disobedience to law enforcement officers or private security personnel is punishable by one to three months in prison. The attack provides for penalties of up to four years in prison (and health personnel are included among the Police officers for this purpose).

The agents should send their actions to the government sub delegations, if possible with a photographic report.

Internal sources have indicated to Efe that the agents of the different bodies will always act from the principle of proportionality.

The Government assures that the decree has not made special emphasis on the sanctioning regime, since the conditions of the declaration of the state of alarm do not respond to a scene of riots or conflict on the street.

The Executive relies on civility and the responsibility of the citizens, for which reason it has not regulated in detail the possible sanctions, which are limited to the provisions of the law on the state of alarm of 1981 and its implementation in the Citizen Security Law .

It is a health crisis and not a security crisis, the Government insists, so the sanctions for non-compliance with the decreed norms will be dealt with in accordance with ordinary laws that already include crimes such as disobedience in the most extreme cases.



The sanctioning regime is as follows:


-Citizen security law.

Article 37.15. The removal of fences, tapes or other fixed or mobile elements placed by the Security Forces and Bodies to delimit security perimeters, even as a preventive measure, when it does not constitute a serious infraction. Slight penalty: fine of 100 to 600 euros.

Article 36.6. Disobedience or resistance to the authority or its agents in the exercise of their functions, when they do not constitute a crime, as well as the refusal to identify themselves at the request of the authority or its agents or the allegation of false or inaccurate data in the identification processes. Serious penalty: fine of 601 to 30,000 euros.

-General Law of Public Health.

Article 57.2.b). Serious offence: fine of 3,001 up to 60,000 euros.

1. The conduct of conduct or omissions that may produce a risk or serious harm to the health of the population, when it does not constitute a very serious offence.

Article 57.2.a) Very serious infraction: fine of 60,001 up to 600,000 euros.

1. The conduct of behaviours or omissions that produce a risk or very serious damage to the health of the population.

2. Repeated non-compliance with the instructions received from the competent authority, or non-compliance with a requirement thereof, if it involves serious damage to health.

-Law of the National Civil Protection System.

Article 45.4 b) Serious infraction: fine of 1,501 to 30,000 euros.

In declared emergencies, the breach of orders, prohibitions, instructions or requirements made by the holders of the competent bodies or the members of the intervention and assistance services, as well as the duties of collaboration with the surveillance and protection services of public or private companies, when it is not particularly dangerous or transcendent for the safety of people or property.

Article 45.3. Very serious offence: fine from 30,001 to 600,000 euros.

In declared emergencies, the breach of orders, prohibitions, instructions or requirements made by the holders of the competent bodies or the members of the intervention and assistance services, as well as the duties of collaboration with the surveillance and protection services of public or private companies¸ when it is particularly dangerous or important for the safety of people or property

-Penal Code.

Article 556.1. They will be punished with a prison sentence of three months to one year or a fine of six to eighteen months, those who, without being included in article 550, seriously resist or disobey the authority or its agents in the exercise of their functions, or to duly identified private security personnel who carry out private security activities in cooperation and under the command of the Security Forces and Bodies.

More people have been fined in the Canaries than have contracted the virus. Let's hope that remains the case.

Saw this just now about the numbers in a car:

It originated on the peninsula but I assume it’s the same across Spanish territory (subject to interpretation by the local GC anyway 😂🤣)
Just tell me when I can retire   Cool
