KUWAIT CITY, Aug 8: Ministry of Commerce and Industry announced that 405 used tires have been confiscated from an auto shop in Jahra Governorate.
According to a press statement issued by the ministry, the Commercial Control and Consumer Protection Department inspected and closed down the auto shop that was selling used tires, which is in violation of law No. 216/2014 that bans importing and selling used tires.
The ministry affirmed that the experience of its inspectors enabled them to discover the huge quantity of used tires that were hidden above the shop in a manner that would suggest they were not for sale.
It urged all consumers not to purchase such tires because they are cheap, as they may endanger their lives on the road especially during the hot summer season.
