Hasbani: MoPH against introducing pesticides containing carcinogens

NNA - Deputy Prime Minister and caretaker Minister of Public Health, Ghassan Hasbani, said via Twitter: 'The Ministry of Public Health still adhere to its position against the introduction of agricultural pesticides containing carcinogens, despite the decision acquired by the Ministry of Economy from the Shura Council. We have contacted the latter to reconsider its decision so as to prevent any potential harm on citizens.'

It should be noted that the representative of the Ministry of Health in the Committee on Agricultural Pesticides voted against re-allowing the import of these pesticides and called for expediting the issuance of a decree to form a scientific committee authorized to give a scientific opinion on these pesticides.
