Seeing the photos of your big day is something you’d look forward to after you would have celebrated. But unfortunately some couples have had to fight to get their wedding photos after a certain local photographer didn’t follow through, causing Consumer Affairs to get involved.
“The Acting Director General (Consumer Affairs) hereby issues this Public Statement in accordance with Article 8 of the Consumer Affairs Act (Cap.378), by means of which she hereby identifies and gives information to the public that the following trader: Kevin Sciberras - Digital Eye has not honoured several decisions delivered by the Consumer Claims Tribunal,” the MCCAA said in at statement.
“In the first case, the Tribunal upheld the consumer's claim, ordering Mr Sciberras to pay the sum of €1,200 after he failed to provide the claimant the final edited product of videos, photos and DVDs of his wedding. In the second case, Mr Sciberras was ordered to refund the sum of €600 to a couple who had paid him a deposit for their wedding photographic services.”
“In the third case, the Tribunal ordered Mr Sciberras to pay a couple the sum of €1,300; €1,000 of which was due to his failure to honour his agreement with the couple concerning wedding photographic services, and the remaining €300 as moral damages,” the statement continues. “In the fourth case, Mr Sciberras was ordered to give the couple their wedding pen-drive and video within a week of the date of the decision, failing which he was to pay €400 to the couple.”
“In these four decisions, the Consumer Claims Tribunal also ordered that the expenses are to be borne by the defendant.”
