The association demanded to hold any negligent party accountable within the laws, regulations and instructions in force.

The association stated that some of the news circulated included false information and accusations, stressing that no entity or person is allowed to tamper with the food security and exploit consumers’ needs during specific seasons, whether this tampering is in the form of raising prices, non-compliance with laws and instructions, or issuing misleading statements and information.
