Aslıhan DOĞRU -TDO- In Belgium, a judge at the Brussels court ruled that the Belgian government should rescue the restrictions imposed under the measures against the new type of coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic within 30 days on the grounds that there is an insufficient legal basis.
The person who filed the lawsuit is Kati Verstrepen of the Human Rights League.
"The judge ruled that the 'principle of legality' was violated, stating that the way it works based on existing laws is not predictable enough," Verstrepen said in a statement.
The Belgian government has been given a 30-day deadline to provide a solid legal basis.
