Montreal mechanic charged with tampering with the odometer

Montreal mechanic charged with tampering with the odometer

A fraudulent Montreal mechanic who retracted his odometers before selling them must immediately cease his business activities following an injunction a few days ago by the Supreme Court.

On August 3, the Supreme Court issued a permanent injunction ordering Farih Al-Sulaimani and Auto Freih to stop the circulation of vehicles on the roads without obtaining the permit required under the Consumer Protection Law, to stop “falsely pretending that vehicles on the roads have a distance that you do not have.” .

On March 9, the Vice President of the Office of Consumer Protection (OPC) revoked the road vehicle dealer’s license that had been issued to Auto Farih “because the company is no longer able to conduct its business activities honestly and efficiently”.

Two months later, 31 accounts were submitted to Mr. Al-Sulaimani and Otto Freih, to replace the odometers without adjusting them to show true mileage, to use incompatible contracts when selling vehicles and to omit to attach the glass sticker to the contract.

“Failure to comply with this injunction constitutes contempt of court, and is punishable by imprisonment,” the OPC noted.
