The mayor of Burj al-Barajneh, lawyer Atef Mansour, issued a statement calling on “merchants and owners of supermarkets and shops to have compassion on people, to look at them with an eye of mercy, to judge their consciences, and to speed up, since tomorrow morning, Sunday, to reduce the prices of goods in proportion to the drop in the price of the dollar.” He appealed to merchants “to sympathize with the difficult and unprecedented conditions of citizens,” noting that “reducing prices will affect people’s purchasing power, even at its minimum, and will enable them to obtain their basic life needs.” He pointed out that “the difficult phase that we are all going through requires solidarity and solidarity, and the merchants have the first duty, and they are responsible before God and their families.” He concluded by calling “the Consumer Protection Authority to activate its role in monitoring and controlling the market in order to protect the interests of citizens and their livelihood,” expressing “the readiness of the Burj Al-Barajneh municipality to support and assist in controlling violations and reporting violators.”
