Al Sheehaniya Municipality has conducted a three-day inspection campaign targeting unregulated markets and street vendors in the area.
The campaign was conducted in co-operation with the Al Sheehaniya police station and the Ministry of Interior's Criminal Investigation Department.
The initiative covered violations of the public cleanliness law and encroachment of state property, as well as sale of food items kept in unhealthy conditions.
A total of 23 violation reports were issued to individuals and there were seven violation reports for vehicles transporting foodstuff in unhealthy conditions. In addition, samples of the seized food items were sent to laboratories of the Ministry of Public Health to check whether they were fit for human consumption.
Director of the municipality, Mohamed Saif al-Hajiri, said they would continue implementing such inspection campaigns. Two similar drives had been conducted earlier.
