Hajilawan is the Director of Bilal Communications Ltd that owns the shop.

Willesden Magistrates’ Court when officers visited the store a second time they seized 174 counterfeit and unsafe goods, which if genuine, had an estimated retail value of £8,800.

This included more of the headphones, which cost from £100 when genuine but he sold for £20, fake mobile phone covers and laptop chargers which were later found to be electrically unsafe.

In addition Hajilawan was issuing customers with a receipt which stated ‘No Refunds’.

This is unlawful as it restricted a consumer’s statutory rights to redress in the event the goods were faulty, not as described or fit for their purpose.

Officers prosecuted Hajilawan because he had ignored previous advice from them on how to ensure the products he was selling were safe.

He admitted charges under the Trade Marks Act 1994, Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 and Consumer Protection Act 1987 and was fined £100, ordered to pay costs of £1,000 and a £20 victim surcharge.

The seized goods will be destroyed.
