Netherlands: Restaurants sue Dutch state over lockdown – Fears of innumerable “padlocks” | WORLD


The Dutch National Association of Restaurants and Catering companies has announced that it will sue the Dutch government to overturn the lockdown measures imposed against the Covid-19 pandemic, expressing fears that these measures will lead to numerous bankruptcies.

Koninklijke Horeca Nederland (KHN), the largest association representing Dutch hospitality companies, said it made the move because the government did not have a clear plan to open businesses in the industry, four months after it was ordered to close.

KHN is also seeking unspecified damages in the latest lawsuit against measures taken by the Dutch government to deal with the pandemic.

A Dutch court last week upheld a request from an anti-lockdown group, ordering the government to lift the overnight curfew that sparked protests when it was imposed on January 23rd.

The Dutch government is extending the ban

Immediately after the court verdict was issued, the government appealed and the implementation of the decision was suspended until the Court of Appeal ruled.

The government is expected to extend the curfew for another three weeks until the end of March tomorrow, but will allow hairdressers and high schools to reopen next week, local media reported.

“We are deeply disappointed with this government,” said KHN President Robert Willemsen. “They continue to be attached to the epidemiological situation, while regularly changing the medical parameters of their policy. At the same time, our businesses are collapsing. “
