A Sheffield woman has complained after money was automatically taken out of her account without her knowing after being told she’d receive a £10,000 coronavirus fine last year.
Sunny-Jo Veasey, 28, is set to have £320 taken out of her account every month after a court hearing took place in her absence and set the charge at £2,026,
She was initially issued with the fine while living in a shared property with seven other people on Ecclesall Road.
She has complained about the “crippling” fine amid the cost of living crisis and insists she didn’t organise a “rave type gathering of more than 30 persons” as has been stated on the charge sheet.
She has also complained about her situation in comparison to that of Boris Johnson and the government, who are still awaiting to see what their punishment will be after the details of their lockdown gatherings were passed on to the Metropolitan Police force.
She said: “They had parties when they were telling everyone else not to and nothing’s happened. It’s disgusting.
“Hopefully something comes of it (the police investigation). If they can charge a person like me £2,000 then they should get the same, although it will probably just be pocket money for them.”
