Woman and company fined for illegal club operations
     A woman and a company were fined $2,000 and $3,000 at the Kowloon City Magistrates' Courts today (February 14) for contravening the Clubs (Safety of Premises) Ordinance.

     The courts heard that in August last year, officers from the Office of the Licensing Authority (OLA) of the Home Affairs Department conducted an inspection at a club on Prat Avenue in Tsim Sha Tsui which had been operating with a certificate of compliance (CoC). 

     The staff of the club failed to show a copy of the certificate of fire services installations and equipment upon the OLA officers' request. Condition 10 of the CoC was breached.
     The woman and the company, being the manager and the CoC holder of the club respectively, were charged with contravening section 21(1)(a) or section 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.
