COPENHAGEN, Nov 14 — The Danish government today announced a ban on alcohol sales at night in some areas and bar young offenders in a crackdown on anti-social behaviour, two days ahead of local elections.

“We cannot accept that young people create insecurity in an entire neighbourhood,”  said Astrid Krag, social affairs minister in the traditionally stable and peaceful country of 5.8 million people.

The social democratic government intends to take “early and targeted measures” against certain young people who “show disorderly behaviour”, by banning them from shopping centres or suburban train stations at certain times, especially at night. 

According to a police survey published in March 2020, 85.6 percent of Danes feel safe, but only 70.9 per cent of those living in “high-risk” neighbourhoods do.

The Social Democrats, who could lose the mayor’s office in Copenhagen for the first time since 1938, also want to ban the sale of alcohol in shops between midnight and five in the morning in “nightlife” areas.

Bars and nightclubs will also have to increase the number of bouncers. 

Nightlife zones—found in major cities including the capital—were defined under a new law that came into force from July allowing certain offenders to be banned from entering all pubs and streets with a high concentration of bars for a up to two years.  — AFP
