Two women are required to quarantine after they had travelled to Dubai for breast augmentation. Thats what the Dublin Court ruled. The womens passports have also been confiscated.
Niamh Mulreany (25) and Kristie McGrath (30) were arrested on their return to Dublin Airport on Friday. Both women had traveled to the Gulf State for breast augmentation. According to current travel restrictions, people who have been abroad have to remain in quarantine for 14 days. An infringement may result in a fine of EUR 2000 converted. Thats what the Irish Independent reports.
No access to flight
Despite the fact that women were able to show negative test results on their departure in Dubai, they were not admitted to the flight because they refused to pay the more than 1800 euros for a stay at the corona hotel. They claimed not to have the money for this and stayed at the airport for several days. Eventually, the father of 25-year-old Niamh, in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, managed to arrange a place on a flight back to Ireland.
When they arrived in Dublin again refused to go into quarantine, they were apprehended. The judge will have to stay at the quarantine hotel for two weeks unless they can show a negative test result after 10 days.
The case will resume on 9 April.
