Addressing a media conference held in Colombo today, union secretary, JA Gunathilaka said that the government should give an explanation with regard to the company which is responsible for this irregularity.

He further said that the Gazette issued in 2013 allowing bringing down waste from developed countries should be annulled with immediate effect.

Meanwhile, the chairman of the Central Environment Authority, Isura Devapriya engaged in an inspection tour in the Katunayake Free Trade Zone after  he received some information that another stock of similar containers is piled up there.
