Unlicensed establishments closed
JM reports that during the early hours of this Saturday, the Public Security Police (PSP) and an inspection team from Funchal City Council carried out a joint operation in the Old Town and Rua das Fontes, which effectively closed some establishments that promoted nightlife without licensing for such.
All venues that did not have a license to operate a dance floor, with or without a DJ, were forced to put an end to their operation, being authorized only to sell drinks.
Following the inspection operation, several bars ended up without customers, and some businessmen complained about the “lack of behaviour” by PSP agents and inspectors from the Funchal municipality.
