A man was arrested during a protest in City Square today.
The incident coincided with the transfer of a premises licence from former restaurant Brassica to Dentana Limited, a company owned by former Brassica partner Dr Rami Sarraf.
The city’s licensing board approved the transfer, which had been postponed from last month.
Police Scotland was asked by the board whether there was any reason why the licence could not be transferred between Brassica and Dentana, which it said there was not.
Former employees at Brassica, a restaurant located in the Caird Arcade overlooking the Waterfront, were in dispute with the company regarding alleged unpaid wages and tips.
Brassica closed suddenly in October last year and was subsequently placed in administration.
Licensing board convener Councillor Stewart Hunter confirmed the licence transfer had been approved but added members of the board had been left “frustrated” at having their “hands tied” by the current legislation.
Police confirmed a 30-year-old male had been arrested and given a recorded police warning.
