The Supreme Court rules that Salvadorans can return to the country without negative PCR

The El Salvadorian Supreme Court (CSJ) has ruled that the government cannot ask for negative PCR from Salvadorans wishing to return to the country or from foreigners who are permanent residents, which has led President Nayib Bukele to do so apply to airlines to be the ones who need a test to rule out cases of coronavirus.

The Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court has argued that the current regulation would “imply an entry ban for nationals who do not have the prescribed and de facto medical outcome”, arguing that “there is no exemption regime to allow this”.

It’s not the first time Bukele has attempted a similar measure, as the president warned at the start of the pandemic that borders would be closed without exception and only goods transport would be allowed, although the government later made it clear that there was never one that prevented the Entry of the Salvadorans, according to “La Prensa Gráfica”.

Bukele, who has suffered successive judicial defeats over the past few months, has regretted on Twitter following the latest resolution that the Constitutional Chamber is continuing “the process of dismantling the government” through a new “attack on the rule of law”.
