al-Hasakah - SMART

The people of the city of Amuda in al-Hasakah, Northeastern Syria, complained about the different prices of the same goods in shops and markets, with the absence of censorship, especially as the Eid al-Fitr approaches.

Rasha Mohammad, a resident of Amuda, reported that the prices differ from one shop to another despite that there is a price decrease compared to last year.

Farha Kalo, also a resident of the city, said that the absence of censorship by the concerned authorities encouraged the shop owners to tag different prices on goods.

A boutique owner from the city, Sido Sheikho, said that the law binds merchants to profit up to 20 percent on a piece of clothing, but several shops do not commit to the law and sell their goods as they please.

Sheikho added that the second-hand clothes market affected the prices of new clothes and forced the merchants to reduce their rates.

A shoe shop owner, Husain Makhalty, called on the Kurdish Autonomous Administration to activate the role of censorship authorities to rid the citizens of the different pricing for the merchants and customers to be happy.

The people of the Amuda's al-Najjarah and al-Allawi neighborhoods complain about a lack of services and the spread of garbage in the streets.
