Al-Marsad newspaper: The Ministry of Commerce defamed a Saudi citizen and a Palestinian resident after a court ruling was issued convicting them of committing the crime of covering up the activity of blacksmithing and aluminum workshops in the city of Riyadh.

The ministry had launched a report on the state of cover-up with the institution, and the judicial officers revealed that the crime had been committed by exploiting the commercial registry belonging to the citizen and the resident carrying out the commercial activity for his own account without a license.

In addition to the resident employing workers in violation of the residence and work regulations that do not have any contractual relationship with the institution, and the payment of their salaries in cash to avoid the control of the financial system.
