Saudi monitors seize more than 3,000 spoiled and substandard products in Sharurah

RIYADH: Teams from the Ministry of Commerce and Investment visited 82 commercial establishments in Sharurah governorate and seized 3,138 spoiled or substandard food and consumer products, including a variety of foods, electrical connections, plugs and chargers.
The teams issued 30 immediate violations against a number of shops for violating regulations, while 10 cases of commercial fraud and three cases of cover-up violations were referred to the Public Prosecutor’s office.
The monitors also recorded eight violations at gold and jewelry stores and called their owners to complete the formal procedures according to the laws governing precious metals and gemstones.
The teams also inspected fuel stations, where 86 fuel pumps were checked and calibrated to verify that there were no cases of fraud in the quality of fuel, and that the owners are committed to the approved pricing.
These tours are an extension of the ministry’s campaigns to ensure legal practices and abstention from offering contaminated or substandard goods.
The ministry stresses it will not be lenient in applying penalties of the Commercial Fraud Control Law which can reach up to three years’ imprisonment and a fine of up to SR1 million ($266,540), in addition to suspending trade activity, defaming the violator at his own expense in the local media, and deporting any offending expatriates after serving their sentence.
All consumers are invited to report any complaints to the report center on 1900, through the application of a “Commercial Report,” or through the ministry’s website.
