This regional regulation prohibits all persons and entities from selling alcoholic beverages with an alcohol content of more than five per cent. It makes an exception, however, for three-, four-, and five-star hotels, discotheques, bars, karaoke venues, restaurants, and cafes (art 7). It is also only these venues that may sell beverages with an alcohol content between 20 and 55 per cent (art 8). The regulation also states that, during the month of Ramadhan, alcoholic beverages may not be sold, except in hotels in the evening (art 9(2)). Alcohol retailers may also not sell alcoholic beverages, and alcohol may not be consumed, near places of worship, schools, offices, hospitals, sporting venues, bus terminals, and residential areas (arts 13 and 18).
