Since the law on "Prohibition of Providing Illegal Accommodation" took effect on August 13 2010, Macau Government Tourist Office has waged a total of 121 sanctions and 16 operators who provided accommodation illegally were fined 200 000 patacas each according to the law on "Prohibition of Providing Illegal Accommodation". Two operators did not pay the fine within the statutory period and MGTO has submitted the related cases to the Financial Services Bureau to enforce the collection of the fine. To date, one operator has voluntarily paid the fine of 200 000 patacas within the statutory period.
According to the law, if the operators do not pay the fine within the statutory period, the Financial Services Bureau will enforce the collection of fine. Meanwhile, occupants who failed to fulfill their duty of cooperation were fined 3 000 patacas each. For those who failed to pay the fine within the statutory period, MGTO has notified the Financial Services Bureau to enforce the collection of fine and informed PSP to deny reentry of the involved persons into Macau if they are non-residents.
The Cross-departmental Working Team will carry on its operation to crack down illegal accommodation. Staff of Macau Government Tourist Office (MGTO) continues to check the premises to ensure they remain sealed and supply of water and electricity suspended. MGTO stressed that damaging the seal and resuming supply of water and electricity is a criminal offence which will be submitted to judicial entity for follow up.
