Warning from Austria: Up to 1 year in prison if you don't vaccinate. You have to pay the cost of your own detention. Prisoners are to be held in custody rooms, which are separate from prisoners.

I wish I could say this is fake news but it's not.

Almost looks like detention camps for covid dissidents are soon becoming a reality at least in Austria.

Please educate others about what is happening. Other countries might adopt their system too if no one opposes it.

All details about the law against vaccination opponents: Up to one year in prison The fine is now milder at € 200, but the amendment to the law against anti-vaccination opponents is explosive in terms of democratic politics: In Austria, vaccination critics face a year of custody in the future. The amendment already passed the parliamentary committee. There should be separate detention rooms for the vaccination critics, and the costs for food will be charged to “the obligated”.editorial staff5 December 2021 07:49 Austria's prisons could become overcrowded in the coming year. APAQuietly, and without wanting to attract a lot of attention, the government has now completed the current template for the enforcement of the planned vaccination requirement. Specifically, this is a corresponding change to the Administrative Enforcement Act.The text of the law, which has already passed the designated parliamentary committee and has only been approved by the ÖVP, SPÖ, the Greens and NEOS with the opposing votes of the FPÖ, is available to the eXXpress.

Accordingly, anyone who refuses to be vaccinated against the corona virus despite being asked to pay a fine of 2000 euros. But it will not stop with a one-off payment: Each violation is punished again with 2000 euros - as with violations of the speed limit. And: Anyone who refuses to be vaccinated and also to pay the fines should be taken into custody.The costs for the detention of the vaccine opponents are "to be collected by the obligated".

Those affected have to bear the costs of detention themselvesAnd analogous to the fines, the duration can add up in case of repetition: While initially a prison sentence of up to four weeks is possible, the government plans to extend the maximum duration to one year (!).Particularly explosive: unlike other prisoners, the public purse does not pay for it, but the person concerned has to bear the costs incurred during this time himself. **So the perpetrator also has to pay for his food and his cell.

**Another interesting passage in the text of the law: **"Prisoners are to be held in custody rooms", which are separate from prisoners, "who are held in accordance with provisions other than this federal law". Thus, according to this amendment to the law, there are apparently separate prison floors or prison buildings for anti-vaccination opponents.**2000 € fine - and imprisonment if "this is not out of proportion to the purpose". . .The new law is due to come into force in 2022On December 2, the constitutional committee gave the green light to the bill - without the content being openly discussed again beforehand.The regulation is to come into force in a few weeks in 2022.

Changes would still be possible - but there was no criticism of any kind among the members of the governing parties, as excerpts from the minutes of the committee meeting, which are available to the eXXpress, show.From the new legal text: Detention checks for vaccine opponents after four months, then every four weeks.What the members of the parliamentary committee said about itWe are publishing the original transcript from the parliamentary committee here:The proposed amendment ( 1176 dB ) stipulates a maximum total duration of one year of custody. In addition, it provides for a legal remedy based on the model of the deportation detention complaint, i.e. it extends legal protection.

In principle, the enforcement of precarious detention is the exception in Austria, is emphasized in the declarations. Usually fines are used as a preventive measure.In the committee meeting, Friedrich Ofenauer (ÖVP) emphasized that convicting detention should be understood as a last resort, which is only used if the rule of law cannot be helped to achieve a breakthrough through fines.The Green MP Agnes Sirkka Prammer underlined that a state is only as strong as its ability to enforce decisions.

She pointed to a built-in legal protection mechanism through which the legality of the detention is continuously checked.Johannes Margreiter (NEOS) signaled his approval and went on to say that this is not about classic violations of the law, but about individual cases, for example if a decision about an action to be taken is not followed.Christian Drobits (SPÖ) particularly emphasized the limitation of imprisonment to one year.The Freedom Party struck a more critical tone. Susanne Fürst (FPÖ) addressed the ongoing debate on mandatory vaccination, which made the topic particularly explosive. 

According to her, it cannot be ruled out that precautionary detention could soon be used en masse, especially for those unwilling to vaccinate. This must be clearly ruled out.There is already a political consensus on this, replied constitution minister Karoline Edtstadler. They want to get people to vaccinate and not lock them up, which can also be recorded in the law of matter. According to Edtstadler, the possibility under administrative law to enforce the desired behavior must be guaranteed so that the legal system maintains its credibility.The government bill was accepted by a majority without the votes of the FPÖ.
