Working on Assembling Iron and Scrap and Marketing the Counterfeit Production as New
MCI Control Teams revealed foreign labors who had converted one of the rest houses, located inside a yard for livestock in Hail, to a factory for renewing used electric doors and marketing them as newly made. All the quantities were immediately seized with the closure of the site. Those involved were summoned for investigation and taking the necessary legal measures against them.
During the raid on the site, a number of machines, parts and materials used in the re-manufacturing and renewing of electric doors were found, along with copies of the invoices and receipts that had been edited by the labors who exploited the site in exercising their illegal activities away from the eyes of control.
This comes as an extension of the Inspection Rounds conducted by MCI in various regions of the Kingdom, to respond to the consumers notifications and to protect them from the counterfeit and harmful materials and goods.
MCI emphasizes that it will continue its Control Rounds on factories, warehouses and commercial institutions, to ensure their regular work, and the absence of fraud practices and manipulation on the consumers, and to stop exploiting the demand for purchase in selling and marketing any counterfeit or adulterated goods.
