Judge convicts city shopkeeper over ‘legal high’



Have your say

A Belfast shopkeeper was convicted yesterday of having drugs he claimed to be a so-called legal high. Mohammad Diwan insisted he had no suspicion the Ocean Snow product stocked at his Wee Carnaby Centre contained banned substances.

But a judge at Belfast Magistrates’ Court found him guilty of possessing Class B drugs because he continued to keep it following an earlier seizure.

Diwan, 59, of Princes Gate, Dromore, Co Down, will be sentenced next month.
