The new Swedish law on alcohol due to go into effect from August first has been put on hold, because of objections from Italy.

Italy has taken advantage of an EU rule which permits the freezing of objectionable legislation in other member countries for three months.

Ulrik Lindgren of the Swedish Ministry of Health and Social Affairs tells the newspaper “Sydsvenska Dagbladet” that Italy doesn’t like Sweden’s restrictive alcohol laws, so it takes action in matters that lack relevance outside of Sweden.

According to the TT news agency, Italy is complaining that Sweden has different rules for the sale of beer of different strengths.
