The Al-Seyassah daily spoke to a number of officials for their views and opinions on the issue after it was widely rumored that some Guirguian packets contained drug pills which prompted the authorities to slap a ban on imports from certain country. All those interviewed have stressed on the need to hold a press conference by the Union of Cooperative Societies to reassure the citizens and provided all details in this respect in cooperation with the concerned authorities.
