Latest Decision by COVID-19 Response Team to be Tested for Constitutionality

By 12 October 2021

ZAGREB, 12 October, 2021 - Constitutional Court President Miroslav Šeparović, re-elected to the post on Monday, has confirmed that the latest decision by the national coronavirus management team would be tested for compliance with the Constitution.

In late September, the national COVID-19 response team decided to introduce, as of 4 October, obligatory COVID-19 certificates or testing for coronavirus for employees in the healthcare and welfare system who have not been vaccinated or have not recovered from COVID-19. The obligation also applies to some of the patients. 

"An attorney from Koprivnica has filed a motion to test the constitutionality of the latest decision of the national COVID-19 response team," Šeparović told RTL television, adding that he must not comment on ongoing cases and especially must not prejudge their outcome.

"The government is now expected to state its position on the matter, and it will be given some 15 days to do so, after which we will examine other circumstances, possibly also opinions, and that will take two to three months," Šeparović said, adding that it was difficult to expect a decision sooner.
