(2007) Liberal Democrat Cllr. Mushtaq Hayat
(2007) A BOROUGH councillor must complete 250 hours of community service after his pizza restaurant was found to be infested with cockroaches. Mushtaq Hayat, Lib Dem councillor for Baylis and Stoke, and a former chairman of the council’s health panel, was also served with an indefinite ban on managing a food business by Slough Magistrates after pleading guilty to failing to ensure the safety of food at Halal Pizza Place, Belgrave Parade, Slough.
(2006) A WANTED local councillor has turned himself in four days after magistrates issued a police warrant for his arrest. Dishevelled liberal democrat councillor, Mushtaq Hayat paced outside Slough Magistrates' Court and chain smoked as he waited for his health and safety prosecution to be heard on Monday.
Police had been searching for the troubled councillor ever since they were issued with a warrant for the bankrupt small businessman's arrest at Maidenhead Magistrates' Court last Wednesday - when he failed to appear at court for the second time. Slough Borough Council brought legal proceedings against the councillor after a health and safety inspection discovered an alleged cockroach infestation at his Halal Pizza Parlour, in Bradley Road, Chalvey, last year.
(2006) A COUNCILLOR is facing arrest for the second time this year after failing to turn up at Maidenhead magistrates court on Wednesday. But when the Express confronted Councillor Mushtaq Hayat later that day, he seemed unware of the danger he was in.
Cllr Hayat, a Slough Lib Dem, is also facing charges of allowing his pizza restaurant to be infested with cockroaches for the second time. He failed to appear before magistrates on Wednesday, when a warrant for his arrest was issued.
In December last year, his restaurant Halal Pizza Place, in Bradley Road, Slough, was closed down temporarily after it was found to be infested. The former chairman of the borough health panel also failed to turn up for a court appearance last month and a warrant was issued for his arrest at the time.
Hayat has already has one conviction over a cockroach infestation and was given a rap over the knuckles by healthy and safety bosses. The 46-year-old from Wexham Road, Slough, was fined £3,000 plus £1,500 hygiene costs in March 2003.
Inspectors found evidence of an infestation by German cockroaches at the Halal Pizza Palace when they visited in January 2002.
