Real Madrid player risks imprisonment for refusing self-isolation

Real Madrid player, Luka Jovic, has been told that he might go to prison after he neglected the self-isolation procedures in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak.

Jovic was allowed to travel home to his native Serbia, after Spanish football was shutdown.

He was ordered to self-isolate as soon as he arrives.

Serbia as a country, has ordered anyone returning from a virus-hit country to self-isolate for up to 28 days.

However, Jovic was spotted in the streets of Belgrade not long after he arrived from Madrid and also made an appearance at his girlfriend’s birthday party.

His actions have left Serbian authorities unimpressed.

“The fact that they are known sportsmen, and that they are rich, will not stop them from being punished,” Serbian Interior Minister, Nebojsa Stefanovic, said according to AP.

“Either they will respect the law, or they’ll go to jail.”
