The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has arrested the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the private company in charge of the National Medicines Regulatory Authority’s (NMRA) database.

This was over the recent incident where several files in the database were erased due to an alleged mistake by an engineer.

It was revealed last July that some data in the system had been deleted and several parties, including the Opposition, had accused it of being a conspiracy.

However, on September 04, it was revealed that the lost data were restored and the originals related to the deleted data are safe.

The NMRA is the body that regulates the issuance of licenses to pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and pharmacies in the country. As it is highly sensitive, all information related to these operations is stored in its digital database.
