An interview with René Fuchslocher

A quote follows:

"…La Vereda: Attorney Fuchslocher, we have learned that there are important news regarding the mobility restrictions adopted for those not vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2. What can you tell us about it?

René Fuchslocher: In the middle of this year, together with my colleague Camilo Cammás and the communicator Johannes Kaiser (currently both candidates for MP for the Republican Party), we began to disseminate templates of protection resources against the restrictions imposed by the President and the Minister of Health, along with the instructions so that each person could present them online to the Judicial Power. To date, more than 2,000 of these constitutional actions have been filed, calling for an end to the draconian measures.

This Friday, October 22, for the first time, the Rancagua Court of Appeals issued an order not to innovate in one of these processes, in which the constitutionality of discriminating between vaccinated and unvaccinated is discussed, given the greater restrictions that exist for these last.

La Vereda: What legal consequences does the above have?

René Fuchslocher: Although in our country the inoculation of SARS-CoV-2 is voluntary, it is evident that there are great state pressures to be vaccinated and the main of these are restrictions on the mobility of the unvaccinated.

Thanks to this ruling, the plaintiff, who is a non-inoculated citizen, must be treated as if he were vaccinated while the process lasts. For example, it stops having special restrictions to travel by public transport, leave the country and enter certain closed spaces, among others…"
