Curry house owner slapped with suspended prison sentence for risk to public health

Conditions at a curry house in Swansea were deemed such a risk to public health that the owner has been slapped with a suspended prison sentence.

Mirza Tunu Miah, owner of Nawab on Christina Street, received a £26,000 fine and was sentenced to four months in prison, suspended for 12 months.

Environmental officers were so concerned they served an emergency prohibition order, which closed the premises immediately during their visit in March 2017. The restaurant reopened the same month following cleaning.

Miah pleaded guilty to five counts of contravening Food Hygiene Wales Regulations and one count of contravening the Food Hygiene Wales Act at Swansea Magistrates’ Court. He also pleaded guilty to the same offences as director of the firm that owns the restaurant, Nawab Swansea.
