Unstoppable struggle against illegal street trading


Inspections to prevent illegal street trading are a part of everyday work of the city authorities. Despite numerous warnings and administrative measures taken there are still people who carry on trading at sidewalks or other unsuitable areas. The Municipality offers such traders to trade at special markets however they have a different opinion about community.
During the inspections the goods such traders sell are confiscated and brought to the administrative district of that district. If the owner of these goods comes after it, protocols are drawn up and that person is fined. Sometimes they refuse to take the goods.
Besides spoiling the look of the streets illegal street trading is dangerous for human health.
The head of trade division of Kentron administrative district Artyom Baghdasaryan thinks that consistent work will bring its results and people will stop illegal street trading.
