Prague - The Czech government wants to lift the ban of liquor serving and sales on September 26, according to CTK´s information from a cabinet meeting held tonight.
The ministries of health, agriculture, trade and finance are to work out the measures leading towards the lifting of the ban within a week.
Based on these measures, distribution of newly produced liquor and of the bottles that were removed from shops last Friday would start.
On September 14, the government imposed a ban on the serving and sales of hard liquor following a series of methanol poisonings. Liquor tainted with methanol has killed more than 20 people this month.
The cabinet reached agreement on the form of a new stamp proving the quality and origin of the spirits, according to CTK´s sources.
The four above ministries were ordered to submit an analysis of the activities of the state administration, inspections and the police in fighting the alcohol black market in the country by October.
