On July 6, the Emergency Operations Committee (COE), the crisis response and management agency of the provincial government, announced the vaccine mandate. According to the announcement, all provincial residents over the age of 16 have to be vaccinated by Aug. 9. The COE also announced restrictions on unvaccinated individuals. These were meant to segregate the unvaccinated population and to coerce them into getting the experimental vaccines that can cause deadly side effects. The restrictions prevented unvaccinated individuals from entering government buildings, bills payment centers, banks, restaurants and many other public spaces.
According to Human Rights Ecuador, the proposed vaccine mandate is not only unconstitutional, but it also violates international law, namely the UNESCO Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights. The country’s constitution states that international agreements ratified by the government, like the UNESCO declaration, take precedence over provincial-level regulations.
The constitution of Ecuador guarantees citizens the right to refuse medical treatments. It also guarantees that all citizens must be treated equally before the law.
Vasey, through his lawyer, filed an injunction against the COE and its vaccine mandate on July 30. His lawyer then scheduled a meeting for Aug. 3. with the provincial ombudsman. Vasey and his organization were hoping this meeting would convince the ombudsman to side with them and override the COE’s vaccine mandate.Vaccine mandate in Ecuador province defeated by health freedom organization – Dr. Eddy Bettermann MD
