The Epic of the Digital Passenger Locator Form (“PLF”) Ended Tragicly… by Decriminalization
Keywords:more favourable criminal or administrative law, supremacy of the Constitution, digital entry forms, contraventional law, decriminalization
Starting from December 20, 2021, everyone who entered in Romania shoud filled in the digital form for entry in Romania (namely the Digital Passenger Locator Form - PLF), according to Emergency Ordinance no. 129/2021.
According to Emergency Ordinance no.22/2022 on the abrogation of the implementation of the digital entry form in Romania, since 12 March 2022, the Passenger Locator Form (PLF) was not not required anymore before arrival in Romania.
Last but not least, having as research object, the comparative analysis of the particularities that characterize the Romanian contraventional law, we propose to fiind out some jurisprudential proposal for which the contraventional spectrum must be held to adapt to the accuracy imposed by decriminalization principle.
