SARAJEVO, Yugoslavia -- A fancy restaurant was closed for overcharging American actor Kirk Douglas and his party 10 times the actual price for a dinner at the Winter Olympics, officials said Tuesday.

Douglas and his seven companions, all guests of the Yugoslav organizing committee of the Winter Olympic Games, paid a bill of 54,000 dinars ($440) instead of 5,400 dinars ($44).

The manager took dollars instead of local dinar currency. Both are violations of the law.

Following a report by a market inspector, a magistrate ordered the restaurant closed Feb. 11 to March 1, 1984, and a local judge began court procedures against the owner of the eating place in downtown Sarajevo.

Three other cafes have been closed for three to six months on similar charges of taking money from customers through exorbitant bills.
