“I am not a criminal” says alleged slumlord

By johnboy 19 July 2010 45

The Canberra Times is hoping to tease you into buying their dead-tree paper with a teaser of an interview with alleged slum lord Jason Fan:

Jason Fan admitted at least 50 people were living in four houses and being charged $100 to $110 a week in rent, but said they were better off than being at the mercy of the private rental market in Canberra.

An emotional Mr Fan said he was shocked at the allegations levelled against him.

”I’m not a criminal … I want to be the good person,” he said.

The ACT Governmnet is charging him with running an unlicensed boarding house?
I’ll bet no one in the DPP has ever lived in a boarding house (I have in youger days while working for a bank in remote parts of Australia) as if they had they would realize that a boarding house provides meals and other services as well as a roof over one’s head. I am not a lawyer but it is a legal no brainer to that Mr. Fan was not providing board for the unfortunate residents. He will walk free, straight to the bank.

I was evicted in June 2011, after a very succesful house party.


Yep, lol!

And it’s good to hear that living in a slum does have some advantages. You wouldn’t have to panic over a bit of wine spilt on the carpet or some paint off the wall.

Regardless of whether the judge will throw the book at you Mr Fran you are a very bad man.
And that is all that matters.

The fact of the matter is, realestates will put you as last preference if you’re young & single (particularly if a student), and with a very low vacancy rental market, you’ve got buckleys chance of getting a house.

I hope he is convicted, however nothing will happen anyway, he will get a good behaviour bond and sent on his way
