New Law Bans Strip Clubs

According to a new law that took effect yesterday, strip shows have become illegal in Iceland. Furthermore, it also prohibits the promotion nudity to attract customers.

However, if a club acquires a good report from local authorities, such as health and safety authorities, police chiefs can exempt the club from the ban and thus allow strip shows to take place on the premises. Nevertheless, private dances will be banned as well as the fraternization of strippers with customers.

Stefán Eiríksson, Reykjavík’s chief of police, expressed his support of the new law in an interview with the national radio RUV and said it would provide the police with much a clearer mandate to take action.
