A district administrator in Rhineland-Palatinate is veiled as a private person in court against the corona regulations that he himself has issued.
The administrative court in Koblenz announced that the application of the CDU politician Marlon Bröhr from the Rhein-Hunsrück district had been rejected (Az. 3 L 313 / 21.KO).
As head of administration, Bröhr was legally obliged to issue the rules, against which he then went to private court.
In an urgent procedure, he had lodged an objection to the nightly exit restriction that he had ordered due to the high number of corona cases in his circle.
There the seven-day incidence had exceeded the limit of 100 for five consecutive days.
The legal basis for the exit restrictions is the Corona Control Ordinance in Rhineland-Palatinate.
According to this, the citizens of his district are no longer allowed to leave their homes between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. unless there are valid reasons.
His official colleague Joachim Streit, future leader of the Free Voters parliamentary group in the Mainz state parliament and district administrator in the Eifel district of Bitburg-Prüm, recently went to court as a private person against the nocturnal exit restrictions in his district - he failed with his objection before the Trier administrative court (case 6 L 1219 / 21.TR).
