HCC: One Link Pacifica operating illegally1 min read


The Honiara City Council has issued a notice to One Link Pacifica who has been operating without a Business License in the City.

Following much debate about One Link Pacifica’s operations in the main stream and social media, HCC has clarified that One Link Pacifica is operating illegally.

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.
