Police Inquiries Into Alleged Sunday Liquor Sale

December 17, 2013

A St George’s business is alleged to have gotten a little ahead of the planned new law, having apparently sold alcohol this past Sunday [Dec 15].

A police spokesperson said, “The Bermuda Police Service is aware that a St. George’s business apparently sold alcohol during the afternoon of Sunday, December 15th.

“This is contrary to the current Liquor Licence Act and it was pointed out to the business,” continued the police spokesperson.

“Inquiries into this matter are ongoing and a file will be prepared and submitted to the Department of Public Prosecutions on its completion.”

In last month’s Throne Speech, Government said they would amend the law to allow liquor sales on Sunday.

The bill seeking to amend the Liquor Licence Act 1974 passed in the House of Assembly on Friday [Dec 13], and is set to head to the Senate tomorrow.

If Senators pass the bill, which is expected to happen, it then requires Governor’s assent to become the law.
