CPD Books Three Shops for Violating Sales Regulations

May 09, 2013



During routine inspection raids by CPD officials, the Consumer Protection Department of the Ministry of Business and Trade has booked three big shops dealing on electronic and electric goods, clothes and accessories for duping customers by offering false promotional sales.
The shops which were spotted out have been booked for violating Ministerial Order No 5 of 1984 with respect to selling through promotions and discounts.
In addition, some other shops were also found to be misleading people and violating Law No 8 of 2008 with respect to consumer protection.
All the offending shops had their licenses cancelled according to the law and regulations for the rest of the promotion period.
Based on the above, the CPD stresses the need for companies and businesses operating in the country to respect the laws and regulations regarding sales and promotions, noting that it would not tolerate violations of the law.
It also calls on suppliers to remain committed to credibility and transparency while offering goods so that there will be trust between them and their clients for the promotion of the right business climate in the country.
