2AM curfew relaxed
The Ministry of Public Security has announced the relaxation of the 2:00am closing of night spots and other places of entertainment for the Christmas Season in Guyana.
“Consequent upon an inundation of requests from businesses, Guyanese back home for the holidays, the general public and even senior public officials seeking to fully enjoy the Christmas Season, the Ministry of Public Security wishes to announce that, in conjunction with the Guyana Police Force, it will seek to relax the enforcement of the 2:00 am business deadline for bars, night clubs and other places of entertainment,” the statement noted.
“It is a time for celebration and knowing the Guyanese spirit the Ministry is persuaded and sees the need for this relaxation. The period during which the deadline will not be in effect is from December 21st, 2018 to January 7th, 2019.”
The Ministry pointed out that all other laws especially those prohibiting drinking and driving and noise nuisance will be thoroughly enforced through more vehicular patrols and policemen outside partying spots.
