Two Woolwich town centre shop owners have been fined for selling illegal products.
Rihana and Sabina cosmetics were found to be selling illegal skin lightening creams and children’s shampoo.
Rihana cosmetics is based on Woolwich New Road (shown on main image) while Sabina is based on General Gordon Square.
This isn’t the first time owners have been fined. They saw fines in 2018 for similar offences and also during the pandemic for ignoring restrictions. On this occasion Greenwich council state they continued to ignore guidance.
Mr Adeel Rubani and Mr Ghulam Musafa were both fined £1,000 and the company an additional sum. Fines totalled a combination of £26,673.70.
It’s also not the first time problems have occured with business in that building on General Gordon Square, with a illegal hotel previously in operation for over a year after planning permission was refused.
