Sri Lanka betrays Kothala Himbutu (Salacia reticulata) to Japan

Sri Lankan environmentalists say that the approval given to the Board of Investment by the Ministry of Wildlife and Peasants Services to grow Kothala Himbutu (Salacia reticulata) is used by a Japanese company named Eco Tech Create 21.

The company has begun growing the rare medicinal plant in 50 acres in Anamaduwa area.

The environmentalists say that this should be stopped and the permission should be revoked.

Environmentalists say that there are 116 patents for productions of processed Kothala Himbutu and the patents should be practically made failures by preventing exporting raw material for processing.
