Check These 15 Lockdown Rules That Could Cost Oou R5,000 and A Criminal Record

Offences include being caught with liquor or spreading fake news about Covid-19. If you breach lockdown regulations, you can be fined as much as R5,000 and end up with a criminal record.

The judiciary has issued a list of offences under the Disaster Management Act that carry admission of guilt fines of between R500 and R5,000.

Judiciary spokesperson Nathi Mncube told News24 the chief magistrate determined fines annually, but there was particular interest in the latest fines owing to lockdown regulations.

"In terms of the Criminal Procedure Act, these fines are issued every year in agreement with the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA)."

Some of the offences that will result in an R5,000 fine being issued include:

– Unauthorised disclosure of information in the Covid-19 tracking database;

– Failure to de-identify and destroy information on Covid-19 tracing database within six weeks after the state of disaster has ended;

– Making intentional misrepresentations on any person infected with Covid-19;

– Publishing any statement to deceive another person about Covid-19, to deceive any person about the Covid-19 infection status of another person, or to deceive any person about any measures taken by the government to address Covid-19;
