Ministry closes 9 stores in Salmiya for selling counterfeit products

Consumer Protection Department of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry closed down nine commercial stores on site, in one of the malls in Salmiya for selling counterfeit products that are subjected for legal audit.

In a press statement Thursday, the ministry said that the seized items amount to six thousand pieces, noting that those in charge of these stores were referred to the Commercial Prosecution.

Kuwait's name has been lifted from the countries that violates intellectual property due to the Commercial Protection Department's strictness in controlling those who trade in counterfeit goods, added the statement.

The Ministry reiterated its emphasis on continuing its monitoring tours of malls and shops to ensure that they adhere to the laws and regulation, to protect consumers from fraud, calling on consumers to report any complaint in this regard through the government application (Sahal). is now on WhatsApp Channel    Follow Channel
