The director of the safety department in the Ahmadi municipality branch of Al-Hamidi Al-Mutairi said in a press statement that the department has implemented several field trips to a number of companies in the southern region to ensure the existence of the license and the validity of the safety license and the license to upgrade the activity to the state properties.
Al-Mutairi added that the inspections carried out by the inspectors resulted in the liberation of 16 violations, due to the lack of a license, the expiry of private catering licenses for some of these companies, and their exploitation of lands belonging to state property.
He stressed that the campaigns are continuous and intensive to monitor all violations and take all legal measures against them immediately, based on the directives of the higher management in the municipality to intensify the campaigns and ensure all licenses granted, whether safety licenses or chipping.
