Montenegro publishes personal data of persons in isolation


Authorities in Montenegro have published on a government website lists of individuals who are in mandatory self-isolation after returning home from abroad. The lists, structured by municipality, include full name, isolation date, and hometown. The government made the decision to do this after discovering that some people were breaking quarantine, on the basis that they were putting the rest of the population at risk. The Civil Alliance has asked the Constitutional Court to review whether the move is constitutional and legal, and has asked for a temporary stay.
