'Landlord' to repay $400

A MAN who took money while pretending to be a landlord has been ordered to repay the money.

John Mustapha was convicted of obtaining unfair advantage and sentenced to six months in jail suspended for nine months.

The court took into account that Mustapha had pleaded guilty on the first occasion and on his free will.

It said that in December last year, the complainant was looking for a house to rent at Davuilevu in Nausori when she met Mustapha.

The court heard Mustapha pretended to be a landlord and asked the complainant to pay $400.

The court heard the complainant returned many times wanting to look at the flat but she was turned away.

She then asked for her money back to which Mustapha replied, he had spent it.

In mitigation Mustapha said he was a widower with two children.

Apart from the suspended sentence, Mustapha has been ordered to repay the complainant.
