SAUDI ARABIA - Aug. 6 - Import Violators Blacklisted.
Chamber of Commerce Counselor Ahmad Ouda says the government has
blacklisted about 200 foreign companies in the past 10 months for
importing $150m worth of Israeli goods. He says the companies, mostly
Jordanian, Cypriot and Egyptian, forged certificates of origin for
Israeli goods in order to import them to the kingdom. Ouda says the
companies will not be allowed to trade in the kingdom again. He says the
illegally imported Israeli goods included vegetables, seeds, mobile
phones and other electronic products.
