Dec 29, Colombo: A special raiding unit established under the Consumer Affairs Authority (CAA) has nabbed over 50 errant traders who had violated consumer laws during the festive season.

A CAA spokesman has told state-run Daily News that the errant traders were caught for breaching CAA Act No 9 of 2003 laws and regulations.

The suspected traders will be produced before Court shortly, the spokesman has said.

The CAA has launched a special programme to nab errant traders who would sell merchandise above the maximum retail price and sell expired goods.

The special unit established on the instructions of Co-operatives and Internal Trade Minister Johnston Fernando has conducted a series of island wide raids during the festive season

The Authority will fine the traders selling goods at higher prices, changing the fixed price of goods, alter prices and sell items without a warranty, selling goods after their valid dates are expired, selling goods underweight and for failure to display price lists.
