    UN High Commission did not import it. Our government who imported and therefore,government should take entire responsibility of people being sick. It is government's responsibility to feed its people with healthy food. This government import all sbstanded products and when something goes wrong,try to put the blame on to the manufacturer

    Do these people who are protesting even know what exactly they are protesting against the FAO? Responsibility does not lie with the FAO, but with our own agricultural department & the GOSL.
