The JVP demands that Chinese ships not be allowed on any basis

The JVP demands that Chinese ships not be allowed on any basis

Claiming that the Qingdao Seawin Biotech Group and Chinese Embassy are influencing the Sri Lankan authorities to accept the ship carrying organic fertilizer shipment which was rejected following the laboratory tests, JVP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake today urged the Government to halt the said ship from entering Colombo port.

 

He told a news conference that the Qingdao Seawin Biotech Group had written to the Director General of Agriculture and several other authorities such as the Secretary to the President, Prime Minister and the Agriculture Ministry Secretary yesterday urging them to accept the ship carrying the controversial organic fertilizer.

 

The JVP MP said the ship was heading to Sri Lanka despite reports that it was turned back after having rejected the sample in laboratory tests in Sri Lanka, as it contained harmful bacteria known as Erwinia.
