Refusing to Leave a Licensed Premises is an offence under Section 77 of the Liquor Act 2007 which is punishable by a $550 on-the-spot fine or a maximum penalty of $5,500 if the case is dealt with in court.
To establish the offence, the prosecution must prove beyond reasonable doubt that:
You were validly refused admission to, or turned out of, a premises if:
An ‘authorised person’ is a licensee, employee or agent of a licensee, or police officer.
An authorised person may use a ‘reasonable degree of force’ to remove you.
The burden is on you to prove the reasonable excuse ‘on the balance of probabilities’.
