Last month, the Georgian government decided to abolish fines imposed on the population for violating quarantine rules. The total amount of fines was 76 million GEL (about 24 million USD). The decision to abolish the fines will affect more than 245,000 Georgians and 344 legal entities.
In Azerbaijan, invididuals are fined 200 to 400 AZN and officials 3,000 to 4,000 AZN for violations related to coronavirus regulations.
In some cases, persons can even be put in administrative detention for up to one month.
Compared to 2019, the number of misdemeanors has risen by almost 17 percent.
