The Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA) has closed down a Chinese restaurant known as KTV 86 Chinese Restaurant and Bar, for operating without a licence.
The facility, located at Labone, was raided by a joint team of the GTA enforcement team and the police on Monday, June 10 as part of the GTA’s nationwide enforcement exercise to enforce the Tourism Law L.I. 2238 and L.I 2239.
Apart from operating a restaurant which the GTA said was illegal, the owners of the facility were said to be operating a brothel as an undercover business behind the restaurant.
About 14 beds, comprising bunk beds and single beds, were found in three separate rooms and only Chinese nationals were said to be allowed to patronise the “brothel”.
The premises was unclean when Graphic Online accompanied GTA officials there and there was no management official of the restaurant around except some bar attendants and cleaners.
