Couple fined £5k each for isolation breaches

A 51-year-old man breached his self-isolation rules after being encouraged to do so by his partner, who received a fine and a suspended prison sentence.

Cedrick Louedec, 51, and Margaret Van Den Heever, 41, appeared before the Magistrate's Court yesterday.

Louedec travelled here from France on 11 August and was required to self-isolate for 14-days. Louedec had a translator in Court and reportedly did not speak English or understand the rules. 

He had been encouraged by Van den Heever, a Guernsey resident, to go out that same day and again the next morning, when they are reported to have travelled on a public bus service. 

It is the first time someone has been convicted for aiding and abetting a self-isolation breach.

Louedec was fined £5,000 combined for the two breaches. He has to pay £2,000 towards that before being released from custody. 

Van den Heever was fined £5,000, to be paid in full before her release. She was also hit with a six-week suspended prison sentence.
