The Ministry of Economy and Commerce (MEC) has enforced a month-long administrative closure of a store in the Industrial Area for selling toilet paper in packages labelled with false measurements.
The closure follows inspection campaigns by MEC in an effort to monitor the market and commercial activity in the country. The decision to close the store for a month is in accordance with article no 7 of law number 8 for 2008.
The law stipulates that suppliers of goods shall clearly display on product labels a clear description of the goods and their ingredients and refrain from posting any misleading or false statements.
The administrative closure was published on MEC website as well as two dailies at the erring company’s expense, according to article no 3 of law no 8 for 2008 on consumer protection.
