Bavaria’s Minister of the Interior wants to punish falsifiers of vaccination passports severely | Free press

For some time now, security authorities have been concerned about the possibility of forging vaccination cards. Hermann emphasizes that this is a forgery of documents.

Munich (dpa) – Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann (CSU) wants to severely punish the forgery of vaccination cards. “This is not a minor offense, but a forgery of documents,” Herrmann told the Funke media group newspapers.

At the same time, he sees the federal government and the European Union as an obligation. “It is high time that an electronic vaccination card that is counterfeit-proof becomes available soon,” said the CSU politician. “I hope this will be implemented very soon at the federal or EU level.”

Federal Justice Minister Christine Lambrecht (SPD) has also warned against producing or using fake vaccination cards. This is an offense punishable by a heavy fine or imprisonment. People who can demonstrate a full vaccination can enjoy plenty of relaxation, such as curfew. Such electronic proof already exists in Thuringia. Authorities there reported a real stampede.
