Response to President's letter on biosafety law

By Arthur M. Makara
The letter from the President to the Speaker of Parliament on key issues that need to be addressed in the National Biosafety Bill before he can sign it into law was my biggest disappointment of the year. At first, when the letter showed up on the social media channels, I could not believe that it was genuine because looking at it closely, it had many shortfalls.
But being from the President and bearing his signature, and seeing no one from his office come out to dismiss it automatically authenticated it.
