2,058 fake sanitizers seized from shopping centre in Ras Al Khaimah


DUBAI – Authorities have seized 2,058 fake sanitizers during a recent raid of a shopping centre in Ras Al Khaimah.

“Around 2,058 hand sanitisers were seized in [the] raid against a big shopping centre,” said Yusuf Al Balooshi, director of the commercial protection section at Ras Al Khaimah Police.

Al Balooshi said that 347 personal care products were also confiscated from other shopping outlets.

“These outlets exploited the consumers by selling them fake sanitisers and disinfectants amid the Covid-19 crisis,” he added.

Al Balooshi said more surprise inspections and raids will be carried out to protect customers from “unscrupulous dealers”.

The official said that an investigation is underway, with legal action to be taken against the violating outlets. ICA/Expat Media
