A Whitechapel market trader with a previous conviction for selling dangerous goods has been fined for selling fake Apple phone accessories on his stall.
Mohammed Zakir, of Aldborough Road South, Seven Kings, blamed his assistant claiming he had no idea the goods were fake.
However Thames’ Magistrates Court heard he had previously been fined for breaking consumer laws.
Last week he was fined £400 and ordered to pay legal costs £1,492 and victim surcharge of £40.
In October 2013 he was convicted of possession to supply unsafe phone chargers and fined £300.
He was also ordered to pay £1,200 in legal costs and a £30 victim surcharge.
In addition he was given a warning for counterfeit phone covers and unsafe chargers in May 2013.
Zakir no longer holds a trading licence with Tower Hamlets Council so is unable to sell legally in the borough.
