Presented by the Interior Minister, this text aims at a more effective implementation of the repressive provisions enacted by Decree-Law No. 2.20.292 by including specific provisions related to non-respect of social distancing between people and the wearing of masks as preventive measures intended to stem the spread of the epidemic, said Minister of National Education, Vocational Training, Higher Education and Scientific Research, spokesperson for the government Saaïd Amzazi, in a press release read out at the end of the Council.

"These offenses can be the subject of a reporting by a police officer on the spot and the payment of a fixed fine of 300 dirhams. The payment of this fine entails the extinction of the public action", indicated the government spokesman, explaining that this will simplify the procedure for implementing the sanctions provided for by the aforementioned decree-law.

In the event that the offenders do not pay the fine, the ticket will be sent to the public prosecutor in order to take the necessary measures within 24 hours from the discovery of the offense, he added.
