PORT MORESBY: A night club, along the Douglas Street in Port Moresby’s Downtown, was closed indefinitely by NCDC Health officials over their facilities having posed serious public health and safety risks.
In a routine check, conducted on POM VIP Club by Environmental Health officers Abraham Keple and Jonathan Nero on February 18, 2020, found that its insanitary facility for both sex were substandard and the floor was wet and slippery.
It was also found that there was poor ventilation and inadequate lighting which is conducive for indecent touching or posing security risks.
The duo said these issues were posing serious public health risks to the general public so it warrants tougher penalties should be taken against the company.
They recommended, in a letter served today in person to Club Manager Liu Xiaoxu, that that both male and female toilets should have two new hand-wash basins and a professional plumber be engaged to construct proper urinary system and provide sufficient floor waste.
It was further recommended that the building structure be provided with adequate lighting and sufficient ventilation.
The closure will be uplifted when the health issues identified were solved to the satisfaction of the authority, they said.
The club was scrutinised previously as well.
