Coronavirus: Guernsey prison sentence for self-isolation breach

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-guernsey-53556429

A man from England who worked in Guernsey has been jailed for breaking self-isolation rules.

Mark Paul Dillon and Georgie Phillips were ordered by a judge to pay a £6,000 and £3,000 fine respectively, or face 300 or 150 days in prison.

HM Sheriff confirmed one of the two men is now serving a prison sentence.

He will be eligible for release if the fine is paid at a later day, with the amount reduced depending on how much of the sentence is served, they added.

Guernsey currently requires all arrivals in the island to quarantine for two weeks.

Neither Guernsey Police nor HM Sheriff would confirm the identity of which of the two men failed to pay.

So far £24,000 in fines have been issued by the courts for breaches of these rules, police said.

Both men moved to the island on 10 July to work at the Yacht Hotel Restaurant and Bar, offers which have now been withdrawn, Guernsey's Magistrates Court heard on Monday.

Dillon was seen breaking the required two weeks self-isolation for new arrivals in Guernsey twice, once at a shop on the day of his arrival, as well as with Phillips at a pub on 16 July.

Neither men have anywhere to live on the island and argued to Judge Gary Perry they were "penniless and homeless".

Sharp lesson taught there.

Read a story about a guy on the isle of man too who was jailed for 12 weeks after being caught outside 3 times, after being warned by police he thought the could go to his dads house and take his dog out for a walk. They threw the book at him.

300 days in gaol! I like it!

Ought to get this story trending in expat communities in spain.

No problem with Poland at all. My problem lies with massive numbers of EE taking low paid jobs and then being subsidised by sap taxpayer. 

Jobs that the majority of UK benefit claimants - who you also have a massive problem with - won't accept.

It would seem to me that the essential work that your "sap taxpayer" is subsidising will at least actually get done by the EEers...

At my work - ha, remember that! - there were ten or so of us. One Romanian, one Nepalese, the rest not just English but local.

I don't really recognise the stereotype of EE'rs in the restaurant trade to be honest.
