He’ll probably end up in court on the 18th, then….
Greasy multi millionaire Laurens Meyer, owner of the De Drie Gezusters den of iniquity on the Grote Markt in Groningen, has threatened to flaunt Coronavirus regulations by opening the huge pub on January 17.
Meyer is no stranger to breaking the law, having been arrested in The Hague in June. His time in a police cell was cut short by irregular heart rhythms that time.
The threat is being made not only in Groningen, but in sixty cities throughout the Netherlands, where entrepreneurs say they want to reopen their doors again on 17 January. According to them, they have waited long enough and the survival of their businesses is in danger if they remain closed any longer, reports the GIC.
Considering Meyer’s age, his flaunting of the Coronavirus regulation looks even less sensible: were he to catch the disease he may be in for a very rough ride.
According to Meyer, the reopening will take place on January 17 if the government does not come up with extra money, or offers any extra perspective.
“People are really in a panic and see no other way out,” Meyer told the Dagblad van het Noorden.
