(MENAFN - Arab News) Jeddah police evicted all illegal businesses in the Briman district junkyard and returned the land to its rightful owner.
The police resorted to forceful evictions after the Saudi traders in the market failed to evacuate the area despite a two-month period granted to them to return the property to its owner.

However, the traders demanded that the Jeddah Municipality allocate them another central area to carry out their commercial activities.
"When some traders resisted the police, they were arrested and taken to the Samer police station from where they were handed them over to the Bureau of Investigations and Prosecutions," a source told Arab News.
No injuries were reported during the confrontation between the police and the junkyard dealers.

While the traders claimed that they had been using the land for their businesses for the past 40 years the landowner said that he now wanted it back to use it for other purposes.
The police said that they had also detected some illegal land-grabbing operations in the place.

"The landowner lodged a complaint at the governor's office that some traders had illegally occupied his land and that they had ignored his demand to have his property back. That is why, the traders were forcefully evicted," said Lt. Nawaf Al-Bouq, the Jeddah police spokesman.
The governor's office issued an order to verify the title deed of the owner to determine if he could take back his land, Al-Bouq said.
The matter was referred to the Samer police station when some traders objected to the order from the governor's office.
