Causeway Bay club fined for serving meals to non-members

A clubhouse operator and a company that had been operating with a Certificate of Compliance in Causeway Bay were yesterday fined HK$2,000 and HK$2,500 respectively for contravening the Clubs (Safety of Premises) Ordinance. Eastern Court heard that a clubhouse in Foo Ming Street had been operating with a Certificate of Compliance under the Clubs (Safety of Premises) Ordinance since June last year. The Office of the Licensing Authority of the Home Affairs Department found that the clubhouse served non-members in early December last year and subsequently issued a warning letter to the club. In late December last year, an officer of the Licensing Authority, posing as a customer, patronised the clubhouse for food and drink without being asked to show his membership status or invited to become a member.
