Human Rights Lawyers, says law enforcement officers cannot arrest a person [on the spot] who does not wear a mask in public.

The organization, Lawyers for | Human Rights, says law enforcement officers cannot arrest a person [on the spot] who does not wear a mask in public.

President Cyril Ramaphosa announced last night that a person who does not wear a mask in public can be arrested, fined or sent to prison for up to six months.

Human rights lawyers say a law enforcement officer must first order a person to wear a mask before arrest can take place. If the person refuses to do so, he or she can be arrested and charged with a crime

Die organisasie, Regslui vir |Menseregte, sê wetstoepassers kan nie ‘n persoon wat nie ‘n masker in die openbaar dra summier in hegtenis neem nie.

President Cyril Ramaphosa het gisteraand aangekondig dat ‘n persoon wat nie in die openbaar ‘n masker dra nie, in hegtenis geneem, beboet of vir tot ses maande tronk toe gestuur kan word.

Regslui vir Menseregte sê ‘n wetstoepasser moet eers ‘n persoon beveel om ‘n masker te dra voor daar tot in hegtenisneming oorgegaan kan word. Indien die persoon weier om dit te doen kan hy of sy aangekeer en van ‘n misdaad aangekla word.
