Man fined for operating illegal private columbarium

Local | 9 Oct 2019 6:39 pm

A man, who was convicted of illegally operating a private columbarium by the Kowloon City Magistrates' Courts today, was fined HK$30,000 with a criminal record registered, the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department said.

An FEHD spokesman said the Private Columbaria Affairs Office had earlier detected that a columbarium in Portland Street, Yau Ma Tei, was suspected to have rented out niches without a licence under the Private Columbaria Ordinance.

An operation was thus mounted at the premises and the operator of the unlicensed columbarium was arrested and prosecuted, he said.
