Operator and manger fined for illegal club operation 
     A woman and a company were each fined $1,000 at the Eastern Magistrates' Courts today (July 14) 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 Java Road in North Point, which had been operating with a certificate of compliance (CoC).

     During the investigation, the staff of the club failed to show the registered drawing 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, were charged with contravening section 21(1) (a) and section 21(2) of the Ordinance respectively.

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