A businessman who was convicted of trade mark offences over the sale of counterfeit jewellery has been ordered to pay back £50,857.62 under the Proceeds of Crime Act.
44-year-old Alireza Haji of Mill Hill appeared at a confiscation hearing at Woolwich Crown Court on 2 October.
The proceedings were instigated following Haji's conviction for trade marks and hallmarking offences in March 2014 when he was sentenced to a 12 month community order and 120 hours unpaid work.
Haji traded as The Phone Clinic, a phone and computer repair business, at 271 Old Kent Road but the offences related to the supply of counterfeit Links of London and Pandora jewellery – some of which was not sterling silver, as described, and some of which bore counterfeit hallmarks.
More than 1,000 items were seized from the premises in September 2011.
