A LUTON councillor who tried to trick members of his own council’s trading standards team with a false document has been fined £2,100 after being found guilty of unfair trading regulations and breaches of Civil Aviation Authority.

Mohammed Ashraf, a serving member of Luton Borough Council who represents constituents in Dallow, was owner of Luton Travel Service in Dunstable Road when he fabricated a document which said his firm had an Air Travel Organiser’s Licence (ATOL).

Checks later confirmed no valid certificates had been issued.

Ashraf, of Denbigh Road, Luton, denied a total of six charges brought by the authority’s trading standards service following a joint investigation with Birmingham City Council into Hajj and Umrah package operators.
