Despite the "Nix under 18 years" rule, minors still drink alcohol. How are they doing? By having alcohol delivered at home, this is shown by a test conducted by RTL News.
14-year-old got home drink delivered
During the test, two minors asked to make six orders with alcohol. In five cases, a 14-year-old actor received the drink without being called up after his age. The delivery was made by Thuisbezorgd, Uber Eats and Heineken Now.
An order of groceries including alcohol of a 17-year-old girl at Albert Heijn was not included. When it turned out she was a minor, the deliveryman said an adult had to receive the food. Two years ago, the Secretary of State believed something had to change. The Ministry reports to RTL News that it is still working on prospecting and expects to arrive at a solution by the end of next year.
Test of vlogger
Earlier this month, Vlogger's Sven van der Meulen from Meppel also tested how easy it was to order drinks online. He ordered drinks on bol.com, Albert Heijn and Gall & Gall, and filmed the delivery with a hidden camera, reports RTV Drenthe.
Once a 15-year-old got the drink. The boy asks the liberator if he can take the order, but it does not seem to be a problem according to the delivery. Five times the 22-year-old Sven receives the drink himself. Officially, he must be asked for his identity card. Two suppliers do it and do not want to give the alcohol without seeing an identity card.
