Drug dealer to lose £17k after court order

A DRUG dealer is to have more than £17,000 confiscated by Edinburgh Sheriff Court.

Mohammad Parvez, 22, pleaded guilty in February to being concerned in the supply of Class B drugs.

Sentencing in the case was yesterday deferred until January 27, but the court ruled that Parvez's criminal lifestyle meant it was entitled to confiscate income and assets gained during the past six years as being the proceeds of crime.

A confiscation order for 17,575.15 was made.
