Licence:  Suspension and formal review

Police have applied for and obtained:
Police statement submitted with application to suspend and review licence
In their application to suspend the licence, the Police identified that:
  • a man was murdered at the Boheme nightclub at 562a Mile End Road E3 on Sunday 27th March 2011
  • two failures by management and staff have already been identified by police - with fatal consequences
    • the weapon was missed by security
    • staff allowed an unknown man to remove the CCTV hard drive which records what happens in the club - which will inhibit the investigation
MERA will be circulating details of the formal review of the license for this club 
in the very near future 
once we have a copy of the advert and the process.
