The Registrar of Pesticides has been removed from that post

Registrar of Pesticides J.A. Sumith, who came under the spotlight over the gazette notification issued to lift the ban on Glyphosate and several other agrochemicals, has been removed from his post with immediate effect.

 

The Registrar of Pesticides yesterday (November 22), issued an Extraordinary Gazette, rescinding the gazette notification issued in 2014 to prohibit the use and sale of Glyphosate and four other agrochemicals in several areas.

 

Later, Minister Aluthgamage instructed the Secretary to the Agriculture Ministry to call for an explanation from the Registrar of Pesticides regarding the gazette issued to revoke a previous gazette notification.
