People fined in Turkey for not following the rules during the COVID-19 pandemic will be able to request a refund of the amount paid, reports the electronic edition of the Turkish newspaper Hurriyet.
According to a decision of the Constitutional Court, the administrative fines imposed during the coronavirus pandemic in connection with the obligation to wear masks and other prohibitions will be able to be reinstated. The decision, taken in connection with an appeal to the Constitutional Court, was published in the Turkish State Gazette.
In this way, persons who have paid administrative fines imposed on them during the pandemic period will receive back the amounts they paid.
In relation to those who have not paid the fines issued to them, the tax authorities will not take any follow-up action and the penalties will be automatically deleted.
