for putting his tenants’ lives in danger by carrying out illegal gas work at the flats he rented.

“As someone carrying out unregistered gas work, and allowing another person to undertake similar illegal work in his properties,
Vispasp Sarkari put a number of the tenants, their families and friends, at serious risk of harm.”
