Food and Drugs Administration officer Iva Fernandes, who busted a racket in July this year involving the use of formalin in fish sold in Goan markets, has alleged harassment by the state government, in a petition filed before the Goa Human Rights Commission.

In her affidavit filed before the Commission on Friday, Iva Fernandes has demanded an examination of phone records of senior officials of the department, which she said would establish their linkages to fish traders involved in using formalin to preserve fish stock.

“I have attached evidence duly signed by all officials of FDA, who were present at site for the purpose of carrying out the inspection with showed presence of formalin in the fish, which instead of being attended with seriousness, I have been sought to be targeted,” Fernandes said.
