Surprise crackdown at souq

Officers from the Ministry of Economy and Commerce (MEC), in co-operation with the Ministry of Interior, have conducted a surprise inspection campaign targeting street vendors at Souq Haraj in the Najma area of Doha.

The surprise campaign resulted in the issuance of 13 violation reports and 136 warnings to street vendors who were carrying out their trade activities without having a valid commercial licence.

Accordingly, the violators were referred to the security department concerned for legal action.

The campaign was carried out to ensure the compliance of suppliers with their obligations under Law No 5 of 2015 on industrial, commercial and similar public shops, and street vendors, as well as their commitment to Ministerial Decision No 243 of 2016 on licences and regulations for street vendors.
