Two Week Curfew Brought To An End

Two Week Curfew Brought To An End

The order instating a curfew which had been in operation over the last two weeks in The Walled City was formally rescinded last night by Governor Hart. 


Governor Hart, who is the civic and judicial head of the city, had instated the curfew due to increased levels of street violence in the city. Nightly street battles between pro- and anti-establishment groupings within the city had been leading to increasing levels of damage to public property and the Governor took action after a man was killed in an altercation between rival groups in the city centre. 


In short statement released  late last night, Governor Hart’s said that he, “would be keeping the situation under review and would not hesitate to take whatever measures were necessary to effectively police the city.”
