Spain’s Valencia saw police take enforceable action against 15 entertainment venues and 79 people on New Year’s Eve
Police in Valencia issued fines to 79 people on New Year’s Eve between the hours of midnight and 6 am for breaking the Covid curfew in place in the region.
Also, 15 commercial premises were issued fines for not complying with health regulations.
On top of that, twenty people were denounced for causing noise pollution and another twenty for not wearing protective face masks as they partied.
The Police also arrested four people for drink driving under the influence of alcohol on New Year’s Eve and a further ten people on New Year’s Day morning.
Despite numerous warnings by the local authorities in the Valencia region, it appears the message did not get through to many although considering the population it’s a small percentage of the majority.
As Aaron Cano, Councillor for Citizen Protection complimented the “exemplary behavior of the majority of the population” but, referring to the infractions added that “there are too many at a time as critical for health as the one we are still experiencing”.
