DOHA: The Ministry of Municipality and Urban Planning has begun naming and shaming eating outlets that are found violating health and safety rules.

The Ministry has on its website named a restaurant in Al Wakra where its inspectors found fried items that were not fit for human consumption.

The Ministry gave the name of the erring outlet as Manama Bakery located on Sheikh Abdul Rahman bin Jassem Street in Al Wakra South.

The raid was conducted on April 15 by inspectors of Al Wakra Municipality. 

The outlet has been ordered by Al Wakra Municipality to be closed for three weeks beginning from last Sunday.

This is the first time the Ministry has named an erring outlet after a new law (Number 4 of 2014) was passed recently authorising it and other Ministries to name and shame outlets found violating health and safety rules.
