Today, Sunday, the Parliamentary Finance Committee confirmed the government’s keenness to provide the necessary financial facilities and support to merchants.
The head of the committee, Atwan Al-Atwani, said in a statement: “Despite its keenness to provide all the necessary financial facilities and support to all merchants, the greedy among them and the speculators are still living off crises by maximizing their profits and inflating their coffers, at the expense of the livelihood of the poor.”
He added, "We note that these speculators and profiteers did not give any consideration or respect to the government's commitment to provide hard currency for their commercial transactions through the official Central Bank platform, as they continue their suspicious trade by manipulating the selling prices of goods and commodities to an exaggerated extent under the pretext of the high price of the dollar, even though they import them at the same price." the official".
He called on the government and its regulatory agencies to "tighten control over the market, to ensure price stability, and to impose the harshest penalties on weak-minded merchants, so that they can serve as an example to others."
