A petition against lifting the glyphosate ban

A petition has been filed before the Supreme Court against the decision taken to withdraw the order banning the import of glyphosate herbicide.

The Finance Minister, the Pesticides Registrar, the Agriculture Minister, the Health Minister, the Director General of Health Services, the Central Environment Authority, the Consumer Service Authority and the Attorney General have been named as respondents in this petition, which has been filed by several parties including the Environmental Justice Centre.

Pointing out that due to the use of glyphosate, water sources, soil and plants are severely damaged in this country, the petitioners further say that through this, human health as well as fish and birds are also damaged.

The petitioners are asking the Supreme Court to rule that the basic human rights of the people are being violated by lifting the ban on the import of glyphosate, and to invalidate the order to lift the ban.
