Meanwhile, Ministry of Commerce and Industry has formed three committees for dealing with issues related to the realestate sector, reports Al-Shahed daily.
According to informed sources, the first committee will be in charge of following up and confronting the sale of fake real-estate properties, the second committee will evaluate the real-estate properties and the third committee will study the problems and obstacles facing the real-estate sector and offer adequate solutions.
They said the three committees are not cooperating with the real-estate registry at Ministry of Justice and the Real-Estate Union, Brokers Union and Public Authority for Civil Information, revealing that the brokers’ books are in the hands of expatriates who control the prices due to lack of a real-estate mediator.
In the meantime, Undersecretary of Ministry of Electricity and Water Mohammad Boushahri has announced the formation of a committee for investigating the pollution in desalination station and the cases of fish deaths in the bay area close to the ministry’s station, reports Al-Shahed daily.
