Ras Al Khaimah Department of Economic Development (RAKDED) received a communication from a citizen reporting a mobile pharmacy selling masks and gloves of unknown origin to people. Accordingly, the inspectors of the Commercial Control and Protection Department investigated and verified the report immediately, where they detected a vehicle selling masks, gloves, sterilizers and some plastic tools in Al Dhait South area.
All products were confiscated containing 200 masks and 2,500 gloves, and other quantities of these products were sold in the past days as revealed by interrogating the vehicle owner. In addition, it was found that the trade license owned by the vehicle owner is for selling foodstuffs activity, and it has expired since 2018. Given that, RAKDED will take the necessary measures against this wrong practice.
“All members of the society should not trust any product sold through any sale outlet except after ensuring that it has a license issued by RAKDED, or is affiliated with pharmacies licensed and approved by the state. It is recommended that all citizens and residents cooperate with the department by reporting any suspicious practices in order to play its supervisory role in controlling those practices and protecting society members.” Stated Faisal Alyoon - Director of the Department of Commercial Control and Protection.
RAKDED received the citizen who reported the wrong practice and honored him for his courageous patriotic gesture and his sense of social responsibility in communicating with the department and reporting the vehicle. RAKDED also calls on all members of society to cooperate with the department to eliminate behaviors that harm the safety and health of the society.
