Woman fined £5k for encouraging partner to breach quarantine in Guernsey


A 41-year-old woman in Guernsey has become the first person to be sentenced for aiding and abetting a covid crime after encouraging her French partner to visit the island and breach quarantine.

Cedrick Louedec (51) and Margaret Van Den Heever (41) appeared before Guernsey's Magistrate's Court yesterday, with each receiving a £5,000 fine.

Louedec travelled to Guernsey 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. 

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.
