AMMAN — The Lower House’s Economy and Investment Committee on Monday held a meeting to discuss procedures implemented by the Jordan Customs Department in assisting investors.

Committee Chairman Deputy Kheirallah Abu Saalik said national institutions cannot be blamed for exceptional circumstances, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. Abu Saalik was referring to the fire that erupted at one of the Amman Customs Department’s yards on October 26 after two firework containers exploded.

Amman Customs Department Director Col. Odeh Qteishat said the containers were moved from Aqaba to Amman after the Aqaba Container Terminal closed the yards allocated for storing dangerous items.
