Spanish government declares a state of emergency for Madrid to enforce lockdown in capital

The government had imposed lockdown measures on Madrid and nine of its suburbs last Friday. 4.5 million inhabitants of the metropolitan area were not allowed to leave their (sub) city without a valid reason.

But the order was not to the liking of the Madrid regional government, which went to the regional supreme court. The court agreed with the regional board. According to the judges, the mobility-restricting measure was contrary to the fundamental rights and freedoms of the residents concerned and involved interference without legal basis.
