Banned Welwyn Hatfield cabbie still on the road
A TAXI driver suspended for nine months after leaving two women stranded, CAN still pick up passengers after a legal query.
Abdul Mohith was banned from being a cabbie by Welwyn Hatfield Council’s hackney carriage committee earlier in the year, but appealed to the magistrates.
As the WHT has previously reported, the magistrates decided to over-rule the councillors and suspend the 52-year-old driver for nine months.
But it is now unclear whether their decision was legally sound and an investigation is taking place.
A court official said: “There’s no result on that appeal, as there is a legal problem.
You may also want to watch:
“The magistrates made a decision, but they are not sure it’s legal.
“There is no result, it is pending.”
