    The curfew is illegal because its not based on needs of public safety and protection from the virus. You are not any likely to spread the disease to anyone if you go for a walk after 8 pm than if you go for a walk at 7pm there is no logic from health point of view.

    I doubt this curfew is legal. If Caymanian people weren’t put down so much by a rogue Government then we wouldn’t have these issues.

      Why don’t you give it try. Go out after curfew, get fined, hire a lawyer, plead not guilty, call an expert witness and see how it goes. I’ll be waiting to read all about in on CNS. Or… you just full of talk?

      If we didn’t have curfew there would be no burglaries and thefts?

      The Governor is viceroy to HRH the Queen and has the full legal authority to implement emergency powers under the Public Health Law including curfew orders in consultation with the CoP under his command. It is understandably confusing because the Premier, subordinate to Gov’s authority, enjoys taking credit for what’s happening.

    Interesting to read Judge Valdis Foldats’s open admission in court that he doesn’t particularly want to comply with the Governor’s curfew orders, and that the $3000 Hard Curfew Guilty pleas he has presided over are being rewarded with an 83% reduction in advertised fines to just $500. Not sure that’s a good judicial precedent, or best strategy for continued curfew compliance and law and order.

        Riiiiight, that’s why the lawyer(s) who say this are all out flouting the law. – Think. And don’t be led down the garden path by forked-tongue lawyers ‘just asking questions’.
