ZürichWarning of police controls – “Sceneishwintiblog” operator convicted
The blogger warned of police checks five times. Now he has to pay a CHF 1,800 fine. Because of the procedure, the 30-year-old had to take out a loan.
The operator of the former Instagram account “szeneishwinti_blog” had warned of police controls.
The Zurich Supreme Court sentenced him to a fine of 1,800 francs, thereby confirming the judgment of the Winterthur District Court.
1800 francs in fines: This is the verdict of the Zurich Higher Court in the case against the Instagrammer “szeneishwintiblog”. He had to answer to the court in March because he posted five warnings about police speed and traffic controls on his account last year. The verdict was announced six months later.
The High Court sentenced the Winterthur resident to a fine of CHF 1,800 for repeated public warnings about traffic controls, thereby confirming the District Court decision. The 30-year-old is relieved. “1,800 francs is a lot of money, but luckily it’s only a fraction of the 16,000 francs demanded by the public prosecutor,” he told 20 minutes. Nevertheless, the Winterthurer had to take out a loan because of the procedure. “Only my lawyer has already cost me 5,000 francs. I couldn’t do it alone.”
“I made certain mistakes”
The Instagrammer was always confessing. Before the district court in December 2021, he said that he had made mistakes. It was not his intention to warn against controls, he only wanted to report on the current events in Winterthur with his contributions.
The district court of Winterthur sentenced the 30-year-old to a fine of 1,800 francs. Against the verdict had the Prosecutor appealed. Therefore, the case was dealt with in March 2022 before the Supreme Court.
