Police officers were called to 405 house parties across the country over the weekend following reports of coronavirus rule violations.

Six people were arrested and a fixed sentence notice was issued, Scotland Police said.

The other persons who attended the party were given “appropriate advice” and then dispersed.

Two officers who went to a house in Muirhouse, Edinburgh, were allegedly attacked.

The windows of two police cars were also broken during the incident at 5:35 a.m. Sunday.

Two men, both aged 47, have been arrested and charged and will appear later in the Edinburgh Sheriff.

Public concern

Police Scotland also confirmed that officers responded to 1,552 reports of noise, public unrest and unrest between Friday and Sunday.

This was an increase of 41% compared to the same weekend last year.

As of Sept. 9, there had been 294 arrests for Covid-related offenses and 3,388 fixed penalty notices issued.

Deputy Army Chief of Staff Malcolm Graham said the force “will not tolerate the blatant disregard for legislation that is out there to help stop the spread of the virus.”

“In some of the situations the officers were attacked, which is terrible,” he said. “The officers were spat on as well as physically attacked in other ways.

“The law is really clear – you can not make a party inside your house and if you do, we will be called and we will take enforcement action to make sure you do not repeat it.”

Deputy Army Chief Malcolm Graham says Scottish Police will not tolerate “open disregard” of the law

It was announced in August that Scotland Police would be empowered to disband and disperse house parties.

The move came amid concerns about links between large indoor rallies and the spread of Covid-19 cases.

A new law went into effect on Monday, limiting social gatherings in Scotland to a maximum of six people from two families.

Scotland Police said officers had been involved in 68,000 “interactions” with the public since the blocking rules were introduced.

Mr Graham added: “Our approach throughout the pandemic has been to engage with the public, explain legislation and guidelines, and encourage compliance, using only enforcement as a last resort.

“We will continue with that approach, but we will not hesitate to use enforcement actions where necessary.

“We will not tolerate the clear disregard of the law, which is in force to help stop the spread of the virus, and we have been using our powers to disperse large groups of people to house parties.”
