His Highness the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani issued yesterday Law No.20 of 2017 amending some provisions of Law No.8 of 1990 on the regulation of human food control. Under the amendment, the closure of a violating shop shall be complete if its condition does not allow the closure of the part where the violation took place. The violator shall be required to pay the closing costs. A sign is to be placed on the shop’s front reading: “Closed for violation of the law regulating the control of human food”. The closure decision is to be published on the website of the issuing agency and in two local newspapers that are widely circulated at the violator’s expense. The law stipulates that it shall be implemented and published in the Official Gazette.
