A CONVICTED fraudster who was ordered to do community service has been back in court accused of threatening people while carrying out the work.

Mohammed Qadr, 21, was told to do 240 hours of unpaid work after he was convicted of nine counts of fraud involving Pearson Vue Driving Assessments at Portsmouth Crown Court in January.

Qadr, of Cumberland Street, Portsmouth, was given a 12-month prison sentence suspended for two years and a three-month curfew to go with the community service.

But the court heard he had threatened to assault other members of the group who were carrying out the community service on March 20.

Qadr denies the allegation.

He was released on bail to return to court for a trial on a date to be fixed.
