Mozambique’s ministry of mineral resources and energy has accused fuel stations of selling adulterated fuel and fined the suspects.
The national director of fuel and hydrocarbons, Moisés Paulino, quoted on Tuesday in the Notícias newspaper, said that the institute had conducted 46 tests on various kinds of fuel and found some had been adulterated.
Most of the irregularities were found in the city and province of Maputo and in the cities of Beira and Nacala, he said.
The inspections covered fuel stations and distribution trucks.
The inspections also discovered situations of tax evasion through selling fuel inside the country that had been declared as being for export so as to get tax benefits.Source: Lusa
