Wheel turners will soon be banned from pubs in Emmen

Wheel turners in the catering industry may soon be placed on a black list again in Emmen. This allows cafe owners to refuse them entry. Until 2018, operators were also allowed to keep this list, but due to the introduction of a new privacy law, this no longer complied with the rules.

The Dutch Data Protection Authority (AP) has now approved a new protocol from Koninklijke Horeca Nederland (KHN). That reports Fidelity Today.

Anyone who uses a weapon, acts like a fighter, assaults or assaults someone can be banned from all pubs and clubs in the area for up to two years. That is less time than with the old system.

Then access could be denied for a maximum of five years. Nevertheless, owner Polly Nrecaj of Café de Zwetser in Emmen is happy: “It is a very good idea to use such a black list.”

In addition to the entertainment venues in Emmen, cafes in Haarlem, Amersfoort, Roosendaal, Zwolle, Enschede and Almelo are also allowed to keep up with the black list. It is not yet known when the new protocol will take effect. The new reporting system with strict security is still being worked on.
