City Clerk Rence Sore said even though they have a certificate of registration for a business from the Company Haus, they still need to have a business license from HCC to legally operate in the City.

One Link Pacifica business activity is related to banking and should have a banking license from the Central Bank of Solomon Islands, however OLP have not been granted one.

“The One Link Pacifica operations is happening in Honiara City but has not received a banking license from CBSI, and it would not be possible either for HCC to issue a business license without CBSI’s banking license,” Sore added.

The notice issued to One Link Pacifica dated 24th February 2020 stated that OLP has been carrying on an unlawful business without a business license, and have committed an offence under s 3(2) of the Honiara City Council (Regulation of Business Licenses) ordinance 2011.

It further states that failure to comply with the notice, they can be arrested without a warrant for committing an offence under the ordinance. The Notice also states that OLP will be liable upon conviction to a fine of up to $ 5000, plus $ 50 for each day on which the offence continues after the notice has been issued under s3(3) of the ordinance.
