MC: An establishment is named and exposed for commercial fraud

06 Jul 2022


The Ministry of Commerce has identified and exposed a business that violated the Anti-Commercial Fraud Law by selling electric strips that did not meet approved standards. 

The Ministry made public a court decision issued by the Court of Appeals in the Eastern Province concerning an establishment in Al-Jubail Governorate. The court ordered that the establishment pay a fine, that all counterfeit products be seized, and that the violator be named in a daily newspaper at their own expense. 

The Ministry of Commerce reiterated its commitment to continue confronting violators of the Anti-Commercial Fraud Law and apply legal procedures against them because these acts deceive and con consumers. The law provides for penalties of up to three years in prison, financial fines of up to one million riyals or both, in addition to defamation of violators at the violator's expense. 

It also encourages all consumers to report violators using the "A Commercial Violation" application or the Toll-free number at 1900.
