Limassol petrol station fined €20,000 for selling petrol of unknown origin

 

The Consumer Protection Service has fined a Limassol petrol station €20,000 for misleading the public with the sale of petrol of unknown origin which it claimed was from Lukoil.

The petrol station is on Makarios Avenue 156, and at the time of the service’s examination of the case, was a Lukoil outlet, the Consumer Protection Service said.

Citing unfair commercial practices, the Consumer Protection Service said it had imposed an administrative fine for misleading consumers.

But the company’s lawyers said the petrol station has already appealed the fine. They said the petrol station had been cooperating with a large multinational petrol company which at some point stopped supplying it with some products, forcing it to acquire them from another large company that supplies other petrol stations in Cyprus. To say that the petrol was of “unknown origin” was mistaken and misleading.
