These images do not date from before confinement, but from last week. The party, given under tent by Dope Belgium, in front of the BLU Brussels nightclub in Anderlecht, created controversy: we see dozens of people dancing, standing, totally ignoring the rules of social distancing and wearing a mask.
The police had already carried out a check the previous week during this same event. “The owner had to report to the municipality in the following days for violation of sanitary measures”, explains Laziza Sadik, spokesperson for the Brussels-Midi police zone.
The cabinet of mayor Fabrice Cumps confirms that the owner of the nightclub was questioned last week after the establishment of the police report. It was then decided that the establishment should close its doors. The owner can expect a closing order in the coming days. “
On the BLU Brussels side, no one wanted to comment, according to Het Laatste Nieuws.
