Taif Mayoralty dismantles famous fruit stall in Al-Hada
The Taif Mayoralty has removed the most famous fruit stall in the tourist destination of Al-Hada after detecting that it was operating illegally.
The stall was popularly known as the heavenly fruit stall as it was located at the top of the nearby Al-Kur Mountain, which is constantly covered by clouds, and is a favorite destination for tourists and visitors.
Speaking to Okaz/Saudi Gazette, sources at the Taif Mayoralty said that the fruit stall was dismantled in an operation carried out jointly with the security authorities.
The teams, mechanisms and equipment of the mayoralty participated in the removal of the stall, which had been in operation in violation of the municipal rules and regulations.
The mayoralty initiated the punitive measures following the expiry of the deadline granted by it to owners of the stall to correct their illegal status.
However, the owners failed to respond to the mayoralty’s directives despite repeated warnings.
According to a statement issued by the mayoralty, this stall operated without licenses from the municipal authorities.
Moreover, their workers did not have health certificates that authorized them to work.
The violations also included non-application of health requirements and proper storage instructions, the low level of cleanliness of these facilities and their surroundings
This was in addition to the damage caused to the stall that resulted in disfiguring its general appearance.
