3 Suva Nightclubs Still Closed

Three nightclubs in Suva are still closed as they were operating with expired business licences.

Last Saturday, the Fiji Police Force closed five nightclubs.

Liquids and Signals nightclubs are now open for business while Bali Hai, O’Reilly’s and Birdland were still closed yesterday.

O’Reilly’s managing director Liam Hindle did not respond to phone calls and a text message sent seeking his comments.

Signals Nightclub manager, Edwin Prasad said it takes three months for the licence to be renewed.

“We have applied for a renewed license for this year, but we are still yet to attain it but today we have applied for a temporary one,”Mr Prasad said.

A Liquids nightclub senior employee, who wished to remain anonymous, said the club now has a renewed licence after they followed it up with relevant authorities.

Divisional Police Commander South, Senior Superintendent Biu Matavou said the business license would only be issued, if the club has been cleared by the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) team with a liquor licence and a consent from the owner of the building.

“They gave us the excuse that Central Liquor Board is delaying, but with this, they can even issue temporary licence if they apply,” SSP Matavou said.
