Luton man sentenced for nuisance 999 calls to police
A man who made more than 100 nuisance 999 calls to Bedfordshire Police has been given a suspended jail sentence.
Mohammed Bashir, 60, of Selbourne Road, Luton, was recorded shouting, swearing and laughing at operators about a British citizenship application.
He denied four charges under the Telecommunications Act over the offences in 2008 and was convicted by town magistrates earlier this month.
The court sentenced him to a 12-week jail term, suspended for six months.
