KUWAIT CITY, Jan 8: The Misdemeanor Court sentenced the head of a restaurant company to one-month imprisonment and imposed a fine of KD 5,000 for violating the delivery prices and raising them to 500 fils instead of 250 fils.
According to a complaint filed by a Kuwaiti woman to the Consumer Protection Department, the “Burger King” restaurant violated the legally prescribed delivery prices, which amount to 250 fils for delivery within the area of the location of the restaurant and 500 fils for delivery to areas away from the restaurant location. The fixed order invoice was attached, which included the violating delivery fees.
As a result, the Consumer Protection Department referred the complaint to the Commercial Affairs Prosecution, which in turn filed charges against the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the restaurant company to which the restaurant belongs and referred him to court. It was proven by the court that the restaurant violated the delivery fees stipulated by the law and the decisions of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, which is based on convicting the first official, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the company to which the restaurant belongs, with the aforementioned ruling, to impose the prestige of the law and the necessity of respecting it by companies and restaurants about delivery fees and the resulting preservation of customer rights guaranteed to them by law.
