        that sounds like that’s good advice across the board

    Ah here What terrible language . The quality of our quarentineers has surely gone down hill.

    seems to indicate tho that he’d already paid over the €2k….I thought it was possible to bypass that by pleading poverty, be it true or false, no?

    (i.e. how do they force/compel you to transfer the €2k if you’re determined not to pay it, anyone?)

    also love the thick dubbelen fuggin fugg out of him, lol

      +1 These measures only “work” because people comply with them. If no one did, they’d all be gone in a week.

    Love that he starts the video by coughing and sniffling…

    weird to record yourself being a complete ignorant fool, so that everyone else can see.. that you are a complete ignorant fool.

    Well it does raise some interesting questions- are you compelled to remain there by law? Either way it is not up to hotel staff to imprison someone against their will- that would be a matter for the Guards.

    Are you compelled to pay the two grand a week? That seems stiff for such basic rations. He also mentioned that 6 people committed suicide – was that people in the hotel?

    It’s worth noting that it was German tourists who took legal action for something similar in Portugal, which forced the courts to rule that PCR tests were not fit for purpose of course.

      Two women already tried to refuse to go. They ended up in court and were sent back.

      Once again partial/misinformation from you. One of the key criticisms in the Portugal were not administered by a medical professional and there was no second test to confirm the results. There are teams of medical professionals at all Irish quarantine hotels to deal with any suspected case.

      1. SOQ

        An appeals court in Portugal has ruled that the PCR process is not a reliable test for Sars-Cov-2, and therefore any enforced quarantine based on those test results is unlawful.

        Further, the ruling suggested that any forced quarantine applied to healthy people could be a violation of their fundamental right to liberty.

        Most importantly, the judges ruled that a single positive PCR test cannot be used as an effective diagnosis of infection.

        Where exactly is the misinformation?

      @SOQ “are you compelled to remain there by law

      Yes.

      See the Health (Amendment) Act 2021
      http://www.irishstatutebook.ie/eli/2021/act/1/enacted/en/html?q=Health+Amendment+Act+2021

      specifically:

      Subject to subsection (4) and any regulations made under section 38G(1)(g)(ii) and (iii), an applicable traveller shall quarantine at a designated facility and shall remain in quarantine at that facility in accordance with this Act

      and later there is some detail on offences:

      Offences related to quarantine and power to give direction
      38D. (1) A person shall be guilty of an offence where he or she—
      (a) fails to comply with the requirement in section 38B(5)(b) to present himself or herself in accordance with that provision,
      (b) fails to remain at the place where he or she presents himself or herself under section 38B(5)(c) or fails to comply with a direction given under that provision,
      (c) resists being detained or brought to a designated facility, or both, under section 38B(7),
      (d) while in a designated facility acts in a manner which endangers the life and health of any other person in the facility or acts with reckless disregard for the life and health of such a person,
      (e) leaves a designated facility—
      (i) for a purpose other than one specified in subsection (19) of section 38B, or
      (ii) for a purpose referred to in that subsection for a period longer than that which is strictly necessary for the purpose,
      or
      (f) refuses to take a RT-PCR test in contravention of the requirements of section 38B(22)

      I scrolled down through the comments until I reached yours, SOQ, the first one that wasn’t a brain fart. Thanks.

      Speaking to everyone on the way out, he was definitely looking for them to prevent him leaving. Not surprising that nobody wanted to go near him.

      1. Cian

        It is equally possible that he had finished his quarantine and was free to go… but wanted to make himself look proper hard.
