This page summarises the results of prosecutions by the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) for the 2015-2016 financial year.
Generally, the VCGLR does not publish the names of individuals prosecuted unless it considers that disclosure is in the public interest and/or to reduce a risk to public health, safety or welfare.
On 5 February 2016, Cafe Neo Pty Ltd offered liquor for sale, whilst not being a licensee. The company also indicated that it was authorised to supply liquor when not so authorised. The company director acknowledged Cafe Neo's responibility for the offending, and the Court remitted the case to the Diversion program, subject to a condition that the company donates $100 to the Court Fund.
A penalty infringement notice (PIN) was issued by a VCGLR Inspector in July 2015 against R & R Liquor Castle Pty Ltd. A penalty reminder notice was served in September 2015. An order for enforcement of the PIN was made by the Infringements Registrar in February 2016 (on behalf of VCGLR). The company applied for revocation of the enforcement order in February 2016 , which was refused by the Infringements Registrar in May 2016. The company sought an appeal of the Infringement Registrar's decision, and the Court scheduled it for an appeal hearing in May 2017. Due to no appearance on behalf of the company, the Judicial Registrar granted VCGLR's application to strike out the appeal, with costs for the penalty reminder notice. The order of enforcement of the PIN by the Infringements Registrar was upheld.
