Belgium judge orders government to end lockdown


A judge in Belgium has ordered the country to end the county-wide lockdown within 30 days.

The Brussels Times writes:

The Belgian State has been ordered to lift “all coronavirus measures” within 30 days, as the legal basis for them is insufficient, a Brussels court ruled on Wednesday.

The League for Human Rights had filed the lawsuit several weeks ago and challenged Belgium’s system of implementing the measures using Ministerial Decrees, which means it is done without any input from parliament.

The judge gave the Belgian State 30 days to provide a sound legal basis, or face a penalty of €5,000 per day that this period is exceeded, with a maximum limit of €200,000, reports Le Soir.

The judge essentially ruled that the government utilized the Civil Safety Act of 2007 to institute the lockdown that gives the government extreme power in emergency situations. The judge ruled that the government must now prove its extreme lockdown measures are necessary and that they work.

Unfortunately, COVID has turned many democracies into totalitarian states and increasingly studies are showing that the lockdowns do not work:
