Female manager fined for illegal club operation

     A woman was fined $3,000 at the Kowloon City Magistrates' Courts today (December 3) for contravening the Clubs (Safety of Premises) Ordinance.

     The courts heard that in May this year, officers from the Office of the Licensing Authority (OLA) of the Home Affairs Department conducted an inspection at a club on Begonia Road, Yau Yat Chuen, Kowloon, which has been operating with a certificate of compliance (CoC).

     During the investigation, OLA officers posed as customers and patronised the club for food and drinks without being asked to show their membership status or being invited to join the club. Condition 19 of the CoC was breached.

     The woman responsible for managing the club was charged with contravening section 21(1) of the Ordinance.

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