Undertaker business probed

June 23, 2023

The Food & Environmental Hygiene Department today said it is following up on a case involving the suspected illegal operation of an undertaker business by a shop in Fortress Hill.


Responding to media enquiries, the department noted that from May until now it has not received any application for an undertaker’s licence from the shop concerned.


On June 21, departmental staff contacted the shop’s person in charge according to the telephone number displayed outside the shop and asked him to assist in investigations.


Evidence is being collected to determine whether anyone is operating an undertaker business without a licence, and the department will take stringent enforcement action against irregularities, it added.
