Voluntary liquor ban to target foetal alcohol syndrome in South China Sea is likely to lead to drug trafficking
The Chinese government on Wednesday said a sweeping amnesty law natyasastra.comimplemented by its People’s Republic of China on the eve of New Year’s Day to remove any illegal alcohol sales from public places would increase the number of illicit sales in the South China Sea region, but also raise “serious security concerns.”
As of December 1, the country had abolished a slew of regulations on booze sales across the entire country, including licensing of liquor stores and the licensing of breweries to sell alcohol.
It also implemented a plan to remove the ban on allowing liquor st더킹카지노ores to sell beer in bars in an effort to help tackle the illicit trade of alcohol.

In the meantime, the crackdown has also triggered large demonstrations and other mass protests in the region, which have spread outside the Chinese mainland as well, increasing t바카라he danger of widespread violence. The new law has led to several deadly street fights in the region, as well as protests in Singapore and the Philippines.
The move could not have come at a worse time, though, as tensions are already on the rise between China and its neighbors in the South China Sea – one of the three claimants to the massive fish and marine zone in the East China Sea.
China has been in a long-standing dispute with its neighbors in the South China Sea, especially over the Spratly Islands, which lie about 70 miles off the country’s west coast.
