28 Feb 2020


The Ministry of Commerce has defamed a citizen and an expatriate of Yemeni nationality after a judicial ruling convicted them of violating the Anti-Commercial Concealment Law. It has been proved that the citizen is enabling the expat to engage in an unauthorized commercial activity by practicing and trading in children's toys in Riyadh.
The Ministry has published a summary of the judicial ruling issued by the Criminal Court in Riyadh, including imposing a fine on the violators, closing the facility, liquidating its trade activity, cancelling the license, writing off the commercial registry, preventing the citizen of practicing the same activity, and deporting the expat from the kingdom after the execution of the ruling, in addition to defamation by publishing the verdict in two newspapers at the expense of the violators.
The Ministry of Commerce and Investment calls on all citizens and residents in all regions of the Kingdom to report cases of commercial concealment through the Ministry's Consumer Call Center (1900) or through the application of a Commercial Violation Report, or via the Ministry's website. Notably, MCI is granting an award of up to 30% of the total sentenced fines after collection. The fine may reach one million riyals against each violator.
