Ten years in jail for holidaymakers who lie about going to Portugal

People who lie about going on holiday to destinations such as Portugal face up to 10 years in prison – longer than the maximum sentence for sex offences with children or violent firearms crimes. On Tuesday, Matt Hancock announced that anyone seeking to conceal their trip to a ‘red list’ country – from which arrivals have to spend ten days in a quarantine hotel – would face a £10,000 fine or prosecution and a maximum 10-year prison sentence. It puts failure to declare travel on the Government’s quarantine locator form on a par with making threats to kill, indecent assault and carrying a firearm, which have 10-year maximum sentences. – Telegraph
