Bernadette Ackermann has been running the Sonne restaurant in Buswil for the last 25 years.

She was anonymously reported to the police for noise after a party when people were speaking outside.

She says whoever reported her to the police and not to her face was cowardly.

She faces 24 hours in a cell. She says she’ll close for the day and put up a sign on the door explaining why.
