The closure is the second in a week as inspectors had sealed a warehouse for stocking liquor last Wednesday.

Sources at the Departments of Economy and Naturalisation and Residency revealed that four illegal workers were nabbed from the warehouse which had printing machinery. Five persons were arrested from the other warehouse.

The workers have been referred to public prosecution.

The Economy Department will hold a Press conference today to unveil the details of the operations.

Information gathered by this reporter showed that the owner of the warehouse where liquor bottles were stored was an illegal Arab resident, identified as A.M. who is wanted in more than 25 cases. His residency visa had expired before the amnesty period was announced by the government last year.
