The Ministry of Economy and Commerce has shut down a store at the wholesale market on Salwa Road for one month for selling counterfeit and expired products.
In a statement issued yesterday, the ministry said the violations included selling expired medications that bear a well-known brand name in addition to counterfeit pens and compact discs.
The ministry inspectors also found products, including electric sockets, cosmetics and perfumes that don’t conform with the standard specifications such as the country of origin.
The closure of the store was carried out under Article 6 and Article 7 of Law No. 8 of 2008 on consumer protection and Article 2 of the executive regulations of the same law.
Such surprise inspection campaigns, the statement said, take place as the ministry is keen on monitoring markets and commercial activities during Ramadan to ensure the quality of stored commodities and on-sale products, and guarantee the rights of consumers.
