WESTON businessmen faced fines and charges of more than £29,000 due to licence breaches which occurred in one of the town’s nightclubs.

Nightclub owner Cam Mu, his wife Que Mu and Mu Mu Enterprises were prosecuted on Friday at North Somerset Courthouse for events that occurred at Dragon Kiss, in Regent Street, Weston on May 23, June 2 and 11 last year.

The charges they faced included selling alcohol after permitted hours, having no designated premises supervisor (DPS) at the nightclub, not keeping CCTV recordings for 28 days and allowing smoking in a public place.

Mr Mu, of Brean Down Avenue, Weston, was fined £5,000 for allowing smoking in a public place and was ordered to pay a £15 victim surcharge. He was found not guilty of selling alcohol on June 2.

Que Mu was fined £5,000 for allowing smoking in a public place, £8,000 for the sale of alcohol outside of permitted hours and was also fined £666 for offences relating to the DPS and CCTV, and was ordered to pay a £15 victim surcharge.

Mu Mu Enterprises was fined £5,000 for allowing smoking in a public place and magistrates also imposed a fine of £1,600 for there being no DPS at the premises on June 2.

For the two CCTV offences on June 11 a fine of £666 was ordered and a victim surcharge of £15 was also imposed.

The firm was found not guilty of selling alcohol outside permitted hours on June 2.

Businessman Kiem Mu, of Wolvershill Road in Banwell, also pleaded guilty to the charges of selling alcohol outside permitted hours and had his personal licence suspended for six months at an earlier court hearing last December.

He was also fined £2,500 and ordered to pay costs of £887 and a victim surcharge of £15.
