The Ampel-Coalition wants to decide on a general compulsory vaccination next year. Whoever does not get vaccinated should pay. But Justice Minister Buschmannn rules out any physical constraint.
Berlin – The new Federal Minister of Justice Marco Buschmann wants to punish violations of a possible general corona vaccination obligation with fines.
“Nobody should be vaccinated against their will by means of physical coercion,” said the FDP politician to the newspapers of the Funke media group (Tuesday). “Instead, it would be conceivable to treat a violation of the obligation to provide proof of vaccination as an administrative offense. Fines could then be considered as a sanction. It would also be conceivable to take into account the financial situation in individual cases when measuring. “
Buschmann left it open whether he would vote for a general vaccination requirement in the Bundestag or not. He will only make a decision when all the applications have been submitted. “There is an application that denies mandatory vaccination, there will certainly be an application that goes in the direction of general vaccination,” he said. “And there will probably be a third application that works with a compulsory vaccination according to age.”
Free voting planned
The Bundestag is expected to decide in the coming year on a general vaccination against corona in a free vote without parliamentary group discipline. Among other things, Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) had spoken out in favor of a general vaccination requirement, but FDP party leader Christian Lindner also says he is going in this direction. About 30 FDP members of the Bundestag had recently spoken out in a draft application against a vaccination requirement.
Buschmann, however, defended the approach of the Ampel coalition not to submit its own draft law, but to rely on cross-faction group proposals. Parliament has already done this on issues comparable to euthanasia. “The route via group applications creates more acceptance and is the more appropriate procedure,” said Buschmann. “Such debates are one of Parliament’s great moments. That is appropriate for such a difficult question. ”Dpa
