13 Barang Kawalan Sempena X-Mas (The Sun Daily)

KUALA LUMPUR (Dec 19, 2011): The government has placed 13 items, including imported turkey, under the price control scheme for the Christmas celebrations.

Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Ismail Sabri Yaakob told a news conference at Parliament lobby yesterday that the scheme will be for five days from Friday.

The items include imported turkey, chicken, local mutton, imported mutton, eggs, tomatoes and green capsicum.

“The scheme would be implemented in 146 areas and traders are directed to display the prices of the controlled items on pink price tags,” he said.

“Traders who are caught selling above the ceiling price would be penalised under the Price Control And Anti-Profiteering Act 2011.”

Ismail said under the law, offenders could be fined up to RM100,000 or three years’ jail or both or could be compounded up to RM50,000. Companies that flout the price ruling could be fined up to RM500,000 or compounded up to RM250,000.

“Individuals who fail to display the pink price tag for the controlled items can be fined RM10,000 or be compounded up to RM5,000, while companies found guilty of the offence can be fined up to RM20,000 or be compounded up to RM10,000.”

He advised consumers to be wary of price control items and to inform authorities of traders who infringed the ruling.

Ismail Sabri said that the scheme is implemented so that consumers can obtain goods used for the festivities at reasonable prices. “It is also to restrict the prices for the essential goods from going up, traders should comply with the price ruling and practice ethical business.”

He said that his ministry monitors the prices in various locations to protect consumers from unscrupulous traders who take advantage of the festive season.

Ismail Sabri urged consumers to lodge complaints via e-aduan@kpdnkk.gov.my, or call toll free 1-800-886-800 or any ministry office, if they found traders or companies selling the goods listed above the ceiling price.
