Footballer-owned Limo Firm Under Fire For Insurance Issues

Posted on December 14, 2011

MANCHESTER, England — A chauffeured car operation co-owned by Manchester City Football Club captain Vincent Kompany is being investigated after Greater Manchester Police discovered that five vehicles stopped in May 2011 were not insured. The Chauffeur Magazine reports that the cars were stopped on the day of City’s final home game of last season and the passengers included the family of at least one of the team’s stars and relatives of the club’s top principals.

Kompany owns a third of Elite Limousines VIP Protection Services while the other two-thirds are split equally between Mohammed Fayaz Hussain and Alyas Hussain. The company regularly chauffeurs many players and officials from Manchester City F.C.

Fayaz Hussain is due in court to face three counts of employing an unlicensed driver, five counts of using a motor vehicle without third party insurance, five counts of using a private hire vehicle wihout correctly displayed plate or tax disc information, and one count of withholding information in order to obtain motor insurance.

Elite Limousines’ fleet includes a Mercedes S Class, Rolls Royce Phantom, Chrysler limousine, Hummer H2 limousine, Lincoln Navigator and Bentley Flying Spur, among others. Elite also provides helicopter and executive jet travel services. Hussain will appear in court on Dec. 20.
