Two young Irish women were arrested in Dublin Airport after flying back from Dubai on Good Friday and refusing to go to hotel quarantine.
The women are both aged in their 30s and were returning from having reportedly getting breast enhancement surgery carried out in Dubai.
It’s understood that the women were arrested when they refused to go to hotels to quarantine and will appear in court today in relation to the matter.
RTE reports that both women have been remanded in custody with each woman providing €800 own bail, €500 in cash and an independent surety of €2,000. Some €1,800 would be in paid cash with the surety to be approved by a District Court Judge and the surety account frozen at €200.
It’s understood that both women plan on challenging the State over the constitutionality of the legislation but that they would now quarantine even though they provided three negative tests in the past week.
Many people believe that it’s absolutely ludicrous for cases like this to waste court time and for people who fly out and into the country on a short basis to have to spend close to €2,000 to quarantine.
