Three MOT fraudsters have received sentences following a DVSA investigation into their criminal activities.

In total, four defendants who worked for Enfield Car Repairs in Enfield were sentenced at Harrow Crown Court on Friday 16 November, having already pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing.

The judge in the case said the defendants’ actions posed a “substantial danger to the public” after a DVSA investigation found that the garage where they worked had issued fraudulent MOT certificates for 73 vehicles.

None of the vehicles in question had attended the garage for inspection.

“We will seek the strongest possible punishments”

DVSA head of counter-fraud and investigations, Andy Rice said: “DVSA’s priority is to protect everyone from unsafe drivers and vehicles.

“The MOT is vital for making sure the vehicles on Britain’s roads are safe to drive.

“That’s why it’s so important that MOT testers act with honesty and integrity.

“The sentences handed down by the court in this case show we will seek the strongest possible punishments for anyone caught defrauding the MOT.”

Imprisonment

Brothers Gentjan Fejzo and Ermal Fejzo, along with Ajet Axhami, pleaded guilty to two conspiracies to make false representations, and Roland Liksenaj pleaded guilty to supplying an article for use in fraud.

Gentjan Fejzo received 21 months imprisonment suspended for two years and was ordered to undertake 250 hours of unpaid work.

Ermal Fejzo received 18 months imprisonment suspended for two years and was ordered to undertake 250 hours of unpaid work.

Ajet Axhami received 16 months imprisonment suspended for two years on the condition that he undertakes 150 hours of unpaid work and made to pay costs of £3,000.

Roland Liksenaj was ordered to carry out 150 hours unpaid work and made to pay costs of £1,500.

Gentjan and Ermal Fejzo both received a four-month curfew.

An order for costs against them has been deferred until the completion of a Proceeds of Crime Act investigation into their activities.

    Makes a total mockery of enforcing the mot system and the law if these crooks can get away with this with a slap on the wrist makes my blood boil especially when us honest guys in the trade do our best to make sure the safety of the motorist seems like these days any in qualified person can open an mot station regardless of there credentials
    Just a joke!!!
