The owner of a secret ‘illegal club’ in Larnaca will face a string of charges in court on March 23, Larnaca district court ruled on Monday, while a total of 17 people found there on Saturday were fined €300 each.

The owner faces charges of operating the club in violation of health protocols, without a license from the tourism orgnisation, without a license to sell alcohol, without a license to use loudspeakers, and he also allowed smoking indoors.

Local media reported that police were tipped off after people nearby heard “low-frequency booming sounds” coming from inside the building.

The police on Saturday raided the gathering and said: “It was found that the premises in question operated in secret and in such a way that its operation could not be perceived from the outside.

“Upon the entry, officers ascertained that it was in operation, since it was transmitting music through loudspeakers and three persons who worked as DJs were identified, while also on the premises were 14 hidden patrons”.

In a separate incident a café in Limassol hosted people to watch a football match on Sunday with 12 people being fined €300 and the owner €750.
