Kenny not sure about fines in fight against Covid

A Sligo/Leitrim TD says he wants to see the detail of proposals to impose fines on those who break Covid-19 rules.

Deputy Martin Kenny also says he would like to hear what the gardai think of the proposals.

New graduated fines are to be introduced for people who break coronavirus rules.

The cabinet sub-committee has agreed to ask the departments of health and justice to draw them up.

There will be different levels of fines for people who break Covid laws, like not wearing a mask or travelling outside their county.

Deputy Kenny, who’s the Sinn Féin’s justice spokesman, says it’s not a good idea.
