Mhaidat explained that “the process began by tracking the websites through which these products and materials were promoted, and from here the supervisory workforce in the institution started and communicated with them until the site was seized and all its contents, including herbal and non-herbal materials used in preparing capsules and pills to be promoted, were monitored.
