Arrests, fines and even jail time are possible penalties for those caught and arrested with glass bottles during Carnival this year.
The police have warned that the Carnival (Prohibition of Glass Bottles) Regulations, 2020, will be enforced this Carnival.
The Regulations are made by the President under Section 5 of the Public Holidays and Festivals Act.
They specify those who are authorised to have glass bottles in their possession, and how close to a Carnival event those authorised persons are allowed to be in possession of the glass bottles.
The Regulations, which will be fully activated at 4:00 am on Carnival Monday and expire at midnight on Carnival Tuesday, also detail the extent of penalties for those arrested for having glass bottles during the prohibited period.
