The retired Viennese professor of constitutional law Heinz Mayer (75) has spoken out in favor of extensive coercive measures and penalties for unvaccinated people. “Only with fines, that won’t be enough,” he told the “Kronen Zeitung”. “Then there must be further consequences. Most likely that would be forced isolation. “
For a mandatory vaccination, with which the government wants to ensure that there will be no fifth wave, the legal requirements are given, as constitutional lawyer Mayer said in another interview: “The legal situation in the current situation is very clear: The pandemic situation is According to experts, this is dramatic and the compulsory vaccination is suitable to cope with this dramatic situation. ” From a purely legal point of view, there must be proportionality, which is the case.
Mayer had previously expressed skepticism about a lockdown for unvaccinated people. This is namely hardly controllable. “How do you want to check in public space whether all the people who are there are also vaccinated?” Asks the lawyer. A lockdown for everyone, on the other hand, would be “a straight path” that would be “relatively easy to control”. A lockdown for everyone would therefore be “the most suitable and probably also the most permissible means”.
