Manager fined for illegal club operation
     A man was fined $4,000 at the Eastern Magistrates' Courts today (July 28) for contravening the Clubs (Safety of Premises) Ordinance.

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

     During the investigation, the staff of the club failed to show the registered drawing and a copy of the certificate of fire service installation and equipment upon the OLA officers' request. Conditions 10 and 14 of the CoC were breached.

     The man, being the manager of the club, was charged with contravening section 21(1)(a) of the Ordinance.

     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.
