Utrecht council uses young teenagers to test compliance with new age-limit

15 January 2014

Cafe and bar owners in Utrecht are furious at the use of young teenagers to find out if they are breaking the ban on serving the under-18s alcoholic drinks. Local politician Henk Westbroek was fined €1,300 at the weekend after selling a glass of wine to a 17-year-old girl. The girl and several other teenagers were sent out by council officials to test compliance with the new law.
