The First Deputy Speaker of the Federal National Council, Hamad Ahmed Al-Rahoumi, pledged to disclose a number of commercial establishments and non-commercial entities that obligate their customers to pay additional “illegal” fees for their use of credit cards when purchasing a commodity or performing a service, during a parliamentary question directed to the Minister of Economy, Abdullah Bin Touq, in the Federal National Council session, scheduled for tomorrow, stressing that "this procedure has become an increasing phenomenon, which requires strict government measures."

Meanwhile, the Minister of Economy confirmed, in a previous written response to the question, that “the ministry monitors and follows up on the markets on an ongoing basis, and takes the necessary measures in the event of any violation,” pointing to the possibility of “individual and limited cases related to the behavior of small-sized outlets that adopt this approach.” .
