National Assembly: Proceeds of Expired Commodities Forbidden
Khartoum – Speaker of the National Assembly has called for activation of the role of the Parliament to monitor and control markets to assist the Sudanese Standards and Metrology Organization to prevent entry into the country of bad goods and commodities.
Ahmed Ibrahim Al-Tahir said proceed of bad goods and commodities is Haram (forbidden).
It is worth noting that Esam Al-Dine Omer, MP, directed a question to the Cabinet Affairs Minister Ahmed Saad Omer who is in charge of the Standards and Metrology Organization about the fact that local markets are flooded with bad commodities.
The Minister said such goods found their way to the local market through smuggling but pointed out the presence of border check points to ensure that such commodities do not enter the country. He said up to 373 parcels have been seized by the organization, adding that many campaigns targeting local markets have been conducted and many more would be carried out to ensure that markets are free for bad commodities.
