New coalition law aims to protect young adults

A new bill sponsored mostly by MPs from the ruling coalition would ban young people from spending all night in bars and clubs, the SITA newswire wrote.

A new bill sponsored mostly by MPs from the ruling coalition would ban young people from spending all night in bars and clubs, the SITA newswire wrote.

The bill would ban teenagers younger than 15 from being in a restaurant or bar after 11pm. Young adults between 15 and 18 would be allowed to stay until 5am, but only if accompanied by a parent or guardian. Exceptions would need permission from the mayor.

As far as discos, teenagers under 15 could only enter if accompanied by a parent or guardian. Young adults between 15 and 18 wouldn’t need to bring along a parent, but could only stay until midnight.

The bill was introduced by Ľudmila Mušková and Katarína Tóthová (ĽS-HZDS), Ján Podmanický and Vladimír Faic (SMER-SD), Ján Slabý (SNS) and independent MP Peter Gabura.

The bill also suggests founding a supervisory office for children and youth protection that would keep records on media, events and establishments that pose a threat. The office would also be responsible for punishing those who violate the law. SITA
