The Director General (Consumer Affairs) hereby issues this Public Statement in accordance with Article 8 of the Consumer Affairs Act (Cap.378), by means of which she hereby identifies and gives information to the public that
Mr Philip Fenech 2779(G)
has not honoured the decision delivered by the Consumer Claims Tribunal.
The consumer had originally requested a refund of €500 which she had paid the trader to carry out painting works on a balcony and door, which remained unfinished. Eventually, she reduced her claim to two hundred euros since Mr Fenech had continued some work in the meantime.
Despite the fact that Mr Fenech was duly served with the Notice of Claim, he failed to submit a reply, nor did he appear before the Tribunal.
The Tribunal, having heard the consumer’s evidence which it considered credible, ordered Mr Fenech to pay the consumer the sum of €200.
