MINSK, September 5 (Itar-Tass) — In Belarus all under-age persons have been prohibited from appearing on the streets on their own, without adult companions during the night hours. The curfew is effective from 23:00 to 06:00. This measure, introduced under a resolution of the Council of Ministers, is effective as of today.
The Interior Ministry has said the measures will protect children from criminal encroachments and reduce the risk of teenagers’ involvement in criminal offences.
“Children and teenagers can stay out in late hours, but only in the company of adults (parents, brothers or sisters or acquaintances). It is most important to ensure where the children are at the moment and in what sort of company,” the Interior Ministry said.
If an under-age person is spotted on the street without an adult companion, police are empowered to find out the name and age and warn the parents, who are obliged to arrive and pick up their offspring within a three-hour deadline. If the parents’ whereabouts are unclear, the child is to be taken to a special shelter. The adults responsible for the child’s presence on the streets late at night will be reprimanded or fined.
