The police expect a large number of party-loving Oslo citizens this weekend and warn of high fines. City Council chief Raymond Johansen (AP) asks people to show consideration.
“We will tighten the enforcement of rules related to disorderly conduct, unrest, and littering,” police chief Beate Gangås in the Oslo Police District told newspaper VG.
During recent weekends, thousands of people have gathered in Oslo’s parks, and according to the police, loud music and party noise at night have led to many complaints from people living near the parks.
Now, the police chief warns that people can risk fines between NOK 8,000-13,000 if they do not follow police orders this weekend.
“We want to talk to people and give good advice early… But we see that some do not follow the orders, and then we have to resort to stronger measures,” she said.
Johansen also issued a warning, noting that there are boundaries. He asked Oslo citizens to behave.
“Have fun, but show consideration. Huge portable music systems can be heard far away. They can negatively affect sleep for many. We must remember that there are a lot of people living near the parks,” Johansen warned.
