Investigations are underway regarding more than 2000 illegal homeopathy centers that are operating Island wide. Only 185 homeopathic practitioners are registered under the National Homeopathic Council (NHC), Chandana Weerasekara Chairman of the NHC told Daily Mirror online.
He added that most of these illegal centers were manned by unqualified homeopathic practitioners with forged qualifications and that these unqualified practitioners were not providing a quality service to the public.
Mr. Weerasekara added that the necessary action will be taken against illegal homeopathic centers and those practitioners who mislead the public. Meanwhile another official of the National Homeopathic Council said the report and figures mentioned by the Chairman could not be verified. (Daily Mirror online)
