Health Ministry Cancels Licenses of 15 Pharmacistsإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Health Minister Ali Hassan Khalil withdrew on Saturday the license of 15 pharmacists after investigations showed that their Colloquium exams were forged.
The National News Agency reported that the licenses of the 15 pharmacists were canceled.
The move comes in light of a scandal that hit the health sector in Lebanon.
General Prosecutor Judge Hatem Madi issued on November 13 a search and investigative warrant against two people, including the brother of Minister of State for Administrative Reform Mohammad Fneish over the illegal medications case.
The warrant was issued against Abdul Latif Fneish and Fouad Ahmed Wehbeh over links to the forging certificates of laboratory tests and illegal medications case.
However, Minister Fneish had said that he would not protect anyone found guilty in the case of illegally imported medications.
Reports say the forgery has been lingering on for about ten months and when it was exposed the health minister claimed it was referred to the judiciary a month ago.
