Former licensee banned for five years
The Independent Liquor & Gaming Authority (ILGA) has issued a ban to the former licensee of El Toro Tapas and Pizza Bar at Maroubra.
Marshall Lukman has been fined $10,000 and banned from being a licensee or manager of a licensed venue for five years following a series of liquor law breaches.
The ILGA Board found Mr Lukman was not a fit and proper person to hold a liquor licence due to his ongoing disregard for liquor laws.
In a complaint to the ILGA Board, Liquor & Gaming NSW submitted that between May 2015 and March 2016 Mr Lukman breached licence conditions on numerous occasions.
The breaches included selling takeaway alcohol, serving alcohol without accompanying food, not maintaining an incident register, serving alcohol without a valid responsible service of alcohol certificate and failing to display appropriate signage.
A Liquor & Gaming NSW spokesperson said case shows licensees who breach their licence conditions can face serious penalties.
