Arrests, fines and jail if caught with glass bottles for Carnival

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.
