Coronapas no longer required for access to European Parliament

Anyone who wants to enter the buildings of the European Parliament in Brussels, Luxembourg and Strasbourg does not have to present a corona certificate for the time being. This has been decided by the General Court of the Court of Justice of the European Union.

Since the beginning of September, all external visitors to the European Parliament buildings had to show a valid corona certificate. That measure was imposed by the Bureau of the Hemisphere and was generalized on November 3.

Several European members of parliament and staff members of parliament, in collaboration with the non-profit association Notre Bon Droit, then went to the European Court to have the measure temporarily suspended. That has now happened. The Court of First Instance is located in Luxembourg and is one of the judicial bodies of the Court of Justice of the European Union.

Notre Bon Droit is an alliance of health professionals, scientists, lawyers and Belgian citizens who believe that the government’s response to Covid-19 is misleading and not based on the best available scientific evidence.
