The Minister of Internal Affairs, Marcel Vela, announced that since the beginning of the state of emergency, 290,000 contravention sanctions have been applied in Romania in a total amount of 570 million lei.
According to Marcel Vela, the amounts collected from the fines applied for non-compliance with military ordinances could be used in the public health system.
“There is a subject in the media that many fines have been imposed and that there can be more or less money 570 million or, well, 285 million if all the fines are paid. I want to say that we have talked to the Prime Minister and we will find a formula, a normative act for all this money to be used for the needs of people with vulnerabilities and for the public health system. That is, this money is collected from the local authorities, it is not collected by the Ministry or the Government, so that those who listen to us know, and the local authorities must redirect it to the public health area. “, said Marcel Vela, on Wednesday evening at Realitatea Plus.
The fines for natural persons who do not comply with the military ordinances have increased since April 3, being between 2,000 lei and 20,000 lei, compared to the initial values, between 100 and 5,000 lei.
The minimum fine for legal entities that do not comply with military ordinances has increased from 1,000 lei, as it was until April 3, to 10,000 lei, and the maximum fine for legal entities remains set at 70,000 lei.
