75 tonnes of spurious drugs set alight in Kabul
The drugs had been seized from medical stores over the past one and a half months in cooperation with officials from the Directorate of Pharmacy and the private sector, Public Health Minister Firozuddin Feroz told reporters in Kabul.
The minister did not say if any arrests were made in connection with the seizure, but warned officials would continue raiding medical stores in search of expired drugs.
“Expired drugs are still available in the market despite our efforts to do away with them,” the minister acknowledged.
