Man fined for illegal club operation

     A man was fined $6,000 at Kowloon City Magistrates' Courts today (June 29) for contravening the Clubs (Safety of Premises) Ordinance.

     The courts heard that in December last year, officers from the Office of the Licensing Authority (OLA) of the Home Affairs Department conducted an inspection at a club on Dundas Street in Yau Ma Tei, which had been operating with a certificate of compliance (CoC).

     The OLA officers found that the exit route had been obstructed and the club's staff failed to show the registered drawings upon the OLA officers' request. Conditions 12 and 17 of the CoC were breached.

     The man, being the CoC holder of the club, was charged with contravening sections 21(2) of the Ordinance.

     A spokesman for the department reminded all CoC holders to comply with the conditions as stipulated therein. Enforcement action will continue to be taken against illegal club operations.
