NIGHTCLUB and internet shop operators have been warned to strictly limit their closing hours as per their licence.
This was outlined during the stakeholders meeting that included representatives from the Suva City Council, Fiji Police Force, nightclub and internet shop owners.
Suva special administrator Chandu Umaria, who chaired the meeting, said internet shops in the central business district could operate after 9pm, while those out of the CBD were to stick to the 9pm closing time.
Mr Umaria said despite the flexibility given on the closing hours, internet shop owners should ensure they do not break any rules and constantly monitor children who might take advantage of the extended hours.
"Internet shop owners should come up with information if children are seen at their premises during school hours and later at night," he said.
Mr Umaria also called on internet shop operators to install relevant software in their computers that would not allow children to access pornographic websites.
Police commanding officer Central SP Tevita Waqabaca said during school hours, children were still seen at cyber cafes.
He urged the operators to check the voter registration cards properly, which were being used as identity cards by children.
