President Radev Refers Certain Health Act Revisions to Constitutional Court

President Radev Refers Certain Health Act Revisions to Constitutional Court

14.5.2020
Sofia, May 14 (BTA) - President Rumen Radev has referred to the Constitutional Court certain texts of the amended Health Act concerning the coronavirus situation which he argues go against the Constitution, Radev's press secretariat said on Thursday. On Wednesday Radev decreed the promulgation of the amendments, with the arguments that the social and economic support for citizens and businesses affected by the crisis should not be interrupted. The Health Act was amended conclusively on May 12. The Government-proposed revisions regulate epidemic-control measures and other actions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic which are to take effect after the state of emergency lapsed on May 13. One of the disputed provision is the announcement of an emergency epidemic situation. Radev argues that having the Council of Ministers as the body which announces an emergency epidemic situation contravenes the Constitution. Furthermore, the law does not specify expressly the duration of such an emergency. Radev also says that the amended act allows restrictions of fundamental rights without providing for timeframes of the restrictions. Radev further disputes the criteria set out in the law on whose basis the chief state health inspectors may assess that an immediate danger is present to human lives and health requiring the introduction of an emergency epidemic situation. According to Radev, the assessment is being formalized and reduced to a preliminary list of findings without regard how this affects people's lives and health. In his opinion, the formalization of the criteria allows for an unjustified broad scope to restrict fundamental rights. The next thing that according to Radev contravenes the Constitution is the absence of a requirement regarding a term of validity of the orders introducing anti-epidemic measures which the Health Minister may issue during an emergency epidemic situation. Radev points that such anti-epidemic measures may restrict constitutional rights, e.g., banning foreign nationals from entering Bulgaria, temporary restrictions of movement within the country, temporary restrictions of the operations of facilities of public significance, or other such facilities or services. The President notes that the restrictions of such essential rights without a legal time limit makes them into permanent restrictions imposed at the discretion of the executive power.
