Covid-19: Togolese government decides to sanction individuals and businesses who ignore safety measures

(Togo First) - After making mask-wearing compulsory in the country, Togolese authorities said those who do not comply with safety measures could face sanctions. 

The government warned that any such person could pay a fine that ranges between XOF3,000 and XOF20,000, or even a worse sanction - XOF50,000 and between one and six months of prison - if the offense is repeated. 

Regarding companies, associations, and other organizations that do not follow the imposed safety measures, they could pay a fine ranging between XOF500,000 and XOF2 million. Depending on the severity of the offense, the fine could be set to up to XOF5 million, the firm could be closed temporarily, or suffer both sanctions. 

Also, vehicle owners who fail to comply with these measures could have their vehicle seized and have it returned only after paying a predefined fine.
