In a tweet, the Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MOCI) has announced the closure of 51 commercial stores in different areas of the country, including restaurants, kitchens, food and consumer good stores, and cafes, for failing to comply with the rules and regulations regarding any increase in prices.
The closing period ranged from a week to one month.

Charging a higher price than what has been announced is a violation of obligations under laws and ministerial resolutions on consumer protection.
The Ministry has urged all citizens and residents to report any violations or infractions related to registration and commercial licensing, or non-compliance with preventative and precautionary measures, through its Call Center: 16001, Twitter: @MOCIQATAR, and Instagram: MOCIQATAR.
