Superficial report alleges government shortcomings – PL
The report from the Board of Inquiry regarding the alleged importation of animal carcasses from North Africa to be destroyed in the incenerator at Marsa is superficial and simply reveals the government’s shortcomings, PL said in a statement.
MEPA was not able to ensure cooperation and coordination in the communication processes between the entities concerned, and the fact that there’s no common database meant that the various entities could not be notified in advance.
PL held that the concerned MEPA Directorate was not properly guided in the preparation of the report, and many of its formal requests to Wasteserv were ignored. the Board concluded that no carcasses were imported, however the allegation was not denied in any of the study conducted.
The report goes to state that from last April, a Wasteserv Official was not capable of providing the necessary information asked by MEPA regarding waste that originated from Libya and Wasteserv officials took no action to submit the relevant information.MEPA’s indifference and passivity towards this negative attitude and Wasteserv’s lack of consignment notes have never been explained either, PL added.
Contrary to what has happened in this case, given similar circumstances, PL would responsably seek an answer for these administrative and mismanagement shortcomings.
