Kigali: From 3rd to 6th July 2018, a joint operation of RAB and RIB allowed to arrest 3 people suspected to introduce and distribute prohibited and forgery veterinary products in Rwanda. The value of seized products is estimated to Frw24, 970,925; mainly in Kigali City, Southern Western, and Eastern Provinces.

The inspection of veterinary pharmacies was conducted by RAB, MINAGRI and RCVD inspectors with the support of RIB, and 52 businesses were inspected.

The seized products are mainly counterfeited products, unknown origin products, prohibited products and expired products. This operation is organized to dismantle a network of illegal and illicit practices in introduction and distribution of counterfeited veterinary products.

RAB and RIB affirm their will to continue this collaboration in order to discourage the actors of such practices in order to protect animal health, public health and farming activities.

RAB is requesting anyone having any information on counterfeited or prohibited veterinary products manufacturing, importation and distribution to communicate it to RAB on following telephone number 0785675817 or 0732800417. (End)
