Bahrain: Pharmacy Closed for Hiking Sanitizer Prices
The Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism closed a pharmacy for hiking the prices of sanitisers.
The pharmacy which is located in the area of Riffa was found in breach of Law 35 of 2019 on consumer protection.
The pharmacy was found to be hiking the price of the 250-millilitre hand sanitizer by 81 percent and the 500-millimetre one by 105% in profit margin gaming soaring demand on such necessary products.
The ministry slammed the greedy hiking of prices as an irresponsible and unacceptable act that deprives people of necessary goods, thus exploiting these circumstances, without heeding public interest.
