No unauthorized meds at co-ops
Social Affairs Minister and State Minister for Economic Affairs Hind AlSabeeh said that an administrative circular banned the purchase, sale and display of products that contain unauthorized pharmaceutical substances. She said the social affairs ministry and its cooperative societies’ sector issued a circular to financial supervisors and concerned administrators at co-operative societies and asked them not to purchase such products in order to safeguard consumers’ health.
MP Hamdan Al-Azmi said the government does not care about its relationship with lawmakers, and the evidence of this in is its rejection of the military rewards law, which is a “bad initiative and the budget deficit is no longer believable”. He asked the government to find another way to deal with the National Assembly, as it is illogical to reject a law that is in favor of citizens.
