TAWAU: A grocery shop owner at Taman Sejati, near Kuhara Road, was compounded RM1,000 after failing to display the price tag on Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) on sale at his premises.

The Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (KPDNHEP) Tawau branch chief enforcement officer Aslani Dabi said the compound was issued around 11pm on Thursday by a team who conducted regular inspections in the area.

According to him, the action was taken under Subsection 3(1) of the Price Control Order (Indication of Price by Retailer) 1993.

Meanwhile, two other retail traders, both sole proprietors of a corporation, were fined RM200 and RM1,000 for using expired weights and measures.

“Both traders violated Section 14(6) of the Weights and Measures Act 1972,” he said in a statement Friday.

Aslani warned all traders to remain ethical and to comply with the Ministry rules and regulations to avoid any action.

He also advised traders not to sell goods at unreasonable prices, especially regulated goods and masks, and the consumers to lodge complaints if they found traders selling items above the fixed prices.
