Landlord is ordered to appear before City Council

July 31, 2014
Controversial Boston landlord Anwar N. Faisal must appear at a City Council committee hearing next month or face possible arrest, after a formal summons was unanimously approved Wednesday.
     Councilors voted 13 to 0 Wednesday to compel Faisal to appear before the Housing Committee on Aug. 13 to discuss the business practices of his company, Alpha Management Corp.
     Councilors said they want to explore with Faisal the company’s relationship with Northeastern University, and the city’s recent findings on a discrimination case involving a student there.
