There are retailers in premises and online that are blatantly profiteering from the current n.Covid19 pandemic health issue where they are charging outrageous amounts for normally inexpensive items e.g. Hand Sanitiser, Anti-Bacterial Hand Wash, Paracetamol, Face Masks etc. The prices charged are 15, 20 or more times the normal retail value. These individuals should be recorded, named and shamed and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law where possible. They are taking advantage of a vulnerable population in a time of crisis. There is a law in the United Kingdom which forbids profiteering.

Please sign this petition and share it in order to have these individuals identified and brought to justice.

The definition of profiteering under United Kingdom law is:

To profiteer is to make unreasonably large profit, all the circumstances of the case being considered, by the sale to one's fellow-citizens of an article which is one or one of a kind of common use by or for the majority of the population. (Hansard 11th August 1919)
