The Government has suggested that those who fail to enforce the wearing of masks in public, could face up to six months behind bars.
That’s according to Justice and Correctional Services Minister Ronald Lamola.
He says, depending on the magistrate’s ruling, that person may be fined or spend up to six months in prison.
“The charges will be the contravention of the regulations of the Disaster Management Act.”
Ministers who serve in the Justice, Crime Prevention and Security Cluster of the National Coronavirus Command Council briefed the media on Wednesday, outlining the new regulations.
