Public Warning Statement against Draz's Dinghy Boats
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 general public that the following shop:
Draz's Dinghy Boats, Jetskis and Scooters
has not honoured the decision delivered by the Consumer Claims Tribunal.
The consumer had bought a boat engine, which did not work after its purchase. Although the item was repaired, the problem persisted.
The Tribunal noted that the defendant, despite being duly served with the Notice of Claim as well as the date and time of the hearing, failed to appear at the sitting. For the Tribunal failure to attend the Tribunal sitting signified that the defendant was not contesting the claim.
Hence, after having heard the claimant, the Tribunal believed his version and ordered the defendant to pay him the sum of €850, the price of the product, as requested in his claim. Once the said payment is affected, the ownership of the boat engine is to revert to the shop.
