COLOMBO (News 1st); Samagi Jana Balawega MP Nalin Bandara on Monday (30) lodged a complaint with the CID requesting an immediate inquiry into the deletion of the National Drug Regulatory Authority’s files from the Lanka Government Cloud.
He pointed out in his complaint that the sudden disappearance of sensitive data of the Drug Regulatory Authority is an action against the provisions of Sections 24 and 130 of the National Drug Regulatory Authority Act No. 5 of 2015.
The MP added that this can be seen as a serious threat to National Security, and the Government should halt giving the elite, the power to handle the medicines business.
Meanwhile, Dr. Rukshan Bellana, Chairman of the Government Medical Officers’ Forum says that the loss of sensitive information can be seen as a mafia attack. He mentioned that the Ministry of Health and the Secretary to the Ministry of Health are responsible for this attack.
Dr. Bella also added that the responsibility falls on the Chairman of the National Drug Regulatory Authority, the State Pharmaceutical Corporation and the Ministry of Health, which have proven ineffective due to Wiyathmaga representatives being tasked with maintaining the relevant institutions.
He added that an investigation into the matter should be launched after arresting the relevant suspects.
