SHOPS have been warned of legal action if they are caught manipulating prices.
The warning was delivered yesterday by the Industry, Commerce and Tourism Ministry’s Consumer Protection Directorate, which announced several violations had been uncovered.
It said it would continue to monitor businesses and hold them accountable.
“The directorate is combating commercial fraud by monitoring a number of violations of some shops for setting prices other than advertised prices, or those that do not set clear prices for consumers,” said a statement by the Consumer Protection Directorate.
“The directorate will take legal action against those violators.”
