Stop discussing, start reacting, it is high time in Oman that the respective authorities responsible for their jobs should start making some real moves and installing changes that widely needed. As a basic consumer in Oman is on the loosing end of his/her rights. There are huge corporations on Oman who are taking tremendous advantage of the basic consumer in Oman as the the authorities are not stern with their enforcements against illegal activities. Look at example of the company (M.A.N) selling fake spare truck parts for about 15 years in Oman, that resulted in a handful of expatriate employees being imprisoned. What about the top management and the actual owners of the company Mohammed Bahwan, who are equally responsible for the illegal trade as it is their company.
