A Company in Al Baha is Defamed by MCI for Breaching the Rules and Conditions of Making Sales

02 Jul 2018
The Ministry of Commerce and Investment has defamed a company specialized in selling perfumes and cosmetics after the issuance of a court ruling by the Criminal Court in Al-Baha, stating that the said company was found guilty of violating the Anti-Commercial Fraud Law by breaching the rules and conditions of making sales.

The criminal court issued a ruling imposing a fine on the said company and the publication of the sentence in two local newspapers at the expense of the violator.

The details go back when MCI inspection teams detected the company, making sales on perfumes and cosmetics without license. This is a clear violation to the Anti-Commercial Fraud Law. Accordingly, a violation notice had been released and the case was referred to the judicial authorities for taking the necessary legal procedures.

Notably, MCI has provided the service of issuing licenses for making sales electronically. This is part of the Ministry’s concern and interest to verify the reality of sales and to ensure the absence of manipulation or misleading against the consumers, as well as to eliminate all kinds of false sales or promotion.

MCI would like to confirm the continuation of addressing any violations related to Anti-Commercial Fraud Law by imposing the necessary legal measures. This is to protect the consumers against any deception, cheating or manipulation. 

MCI calls on all consumers to lodge their complaints through MCI Consumer Call Center (1900) or through the application of a Commercial Violation Report, or via the Ministry's website.
