Mohamed Hadid enters no contest pleas in construction dispute

Gigi and Bella Hadid’s father has pleaded no contest to charges relating to an illegal construction project.
Los Angeles city officials ordered Mohamed Hadid to cease construction on a massive mansion in 2014, because parts of the home, including bedrooms and a theatre, were not approved. He was subsequently hit with misdemeanour charges of erecting a structure other than what was permitted, failing to make the building conform to code, and failing to comply with an order issued by the Department of Building and Safety.
On Tuesday (30May17), his lawyers entered the no contest pleas. Hadid will be sentenced in June (17).
“These were serious violations,” a statement from City Attorney Mike Feuer reads. “It was essential to hold the defendant accountable for committing them. We have building and safety rules for a reason, and no one is above the law. At the sentencing hearing we’ll make our case for strong and appropriate sanctions.”
