Egyptians Banned From Purchasing Liquor on Religious Holidays
Egyptian tourist facilities aren’t allowed to provide alcohol to local citizens during any Islamic religious holidays, the official Middle East News Agency reported today, citing Tourism Minister Mounir Fakhry Abdel- Nour.
The ban was previously only implemented during Muslim’s fasting month of Ramadan, the news service said. Businesses violating this decision will face suspension and delisting by the ministry, MENA reported.
