Dodgy car dealer fined


A LABRADOR car salesman has again been found guilty of unlicensed motor dealing after a re-hearing in Southport Magistrate­s Court.

Parvis Amiri (or Pablo Amiri) faced the court once more on May 10 after he was initially found guilty in his absence in February.

In the re-hearing, Amiri pleaded guilty, was fined $5000 and a conviction was recorded following an investigat­ion by Office of Fair Trading.

Previously, Amiri was prosecuted for making misleading claims to a customer about a warranty and for accepting a deposit from another customer but failing to complete the contract or refund the deposit.

Days after appearing in court, it was discovered Amiri had been continuing to operate as a motor dealer even though he did not hold a licence.
