Police issued more than 3,600 fines on Saturday evening and last night for violating curfews.

There have also been 25 arrests, the police reported on Sunday.

The arrests were made because the people refused to leave or committed open violence, police said.

Despite the fines and arrests, the picture after curfew was “mostly quiet”.

There were 20 percent fewer reports compared to a normal Saturday.

Of the people checked by the police, 80 percent had the correct papers to be on the street during curfew.
