The Owner of a Ready-Made Garment Est. in Dammam is Defamed by MCI for Making Discounts/Sales Without a License

07 May 2018
The Ministry of Commerce and Investment has defamed the owner of an established trading in ready-made garments in Dammam. The owner found guilty of violating the Anti-Commercial Fraud Law by offering discounts and sales without obtaining a license.

MCI published the verdict issued by the Criminal Court in Dammam, imposing a fine on the said Est., and the sentence to be published in two local newspapers at the expense of the defendant.

Notably, the Ministry has provided an e-service for issuing sales licenses for the commercial establishments. This is part of the Ministry’s keenness and endeavor to verify the reality of the sales and to ensure the absence of any manipulation or deception against the consumers and to eliminate all the false offers.

The Ministry of Commerce and Investment would like to confirm the continuation of addressing the violators of the Anti-Commercial Fraud Law by taking stern measures and imposing the legal penalties against them, since they pose a risk against the consumers by cheating and deceiving them.

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