A Birkby businessman whose takeaway was closed after rat and mice droppings were found is due in court.
Magistrates ordered the closure of the New Sanam Sweet Centre, above, last September.
They issued owner Manzoor Hussain with the emergency prohibition notice after hearing how the shop had become a haven for rodents.
The Blacker Road premises was shut until inspectors gave it the green light to reopen.
However Hussain, 45, still faces seven charges of contravening Food Hygiene Regulations on February 21 last year.
The breaches are said to include failing to ensure adequate pest control, ready to eat potatoes being found next to rat droppings and failing to ensure the business was kept clean and in good repair.
Hussain was due at the Huddersfield court on Wednesday.
However he was serving time in custody for offences under the Insolvency Act and failing to surrender to bail.
Magistrates adjourned his case until May 28 which is after his release date.
