Blue Badge Misuse prosecutions

Published Monday, 14 July 2014

Three people have been ordered to pay more than £1,000 after Enfield Council successfully prosecuted them for misusing disabled blue badges.

June Gregori, 63, of Maybury Close, Enfield, Orhan Kilinchan, 55, of Avenue Road, Southgate and Ibrahim Dogan, 66, of Wolsey Road, Enfield were summoned to appear at Tottenham Magistrates Court on Thursday 3 July charged with using a disabled blue badge without the holder of the badge being present.
 
The three were ordered to pay more than £1,450 in costs, fines and victim surcharges.  Gregori was found guilty in her absence and was fined £200. Kilinchan and Dogan pleaded guilty to the offence and were given a 12 month conditional discharge, on the condition that they do not commit another offence.
 
Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Community Safety, Cllr Chris Bond, said: “Misusing a person’s blue badge is an awful and completely unacceptable act.

“Blue badges are designed to make life easier for chronically ill and disabled people, they don’t exist for others to con people and park wherever they like completely free of charge. I advise anyone attempting to commit this type of fraud to think about the consequences of their actions.”
