Cairo to Impose Penalties on Non-law Abiding Commercial Units

Monday, 30th January 2017

Governor of Cairo Atef Abdel Hamid has prohibited owners of commercial units in neighborhoods from conducting any street violation and misuse of facilities else they face a EGP 10,000 penalty or a prison sentence, Invest-Gate reports.

Commercial units’ owners are also obliged to install surveillance cameras and trash bins, as well as avoid conducting their commercial activity outside garages, state lands, and illegally-built buildings, according to a released governorate statement.

Abdel Hamid urged local authorities to follow up on neighborhoods’ organization and cleanliness, which came as part of a meeting held earlier where he met with heads of local authorities, parliamentary representatives, and central administrators.
