A bench of the Goa Human Rights Commission (GHRC) comprising of Retired District Judges Desmond D’Costa and Pramod Kamat today fixed for December 11th hearing of the final arguments into the complaint filed by Senior Food & Drugs Official Iva Fernandes over the undue and blatant harassment being met out to her by the Director of FDA Jyoti Sardesai after she raided the Wholesale Fish Market at Margao and detected formalin laced fish on 12th July 2018.

Iva Fernandes represented by Adv. Aires Rodrigues has in her complaint accused Director Jyoti Sardesai of very high-handedly persecuting her for upholding the law and not succumbing to external and political pressures.

Pointing out that the Director has kept her out from all her routine duties and from meetings held with the Food safety enforcement staff, Iva Fernandes has further accused the Director of crawling to help the fish mafia who were supplying adulterated seafood while endangering the lives of the public.

Iva Fernandes has also stated that as part of the
harassment meted out to her she was denied her rightful Leave Travel Concession (LTC) by rejecting at the last minute her application for permission to leave the headquarters thus causing her a financial loss of Rs. 34,592 on the travel tickets bought. Iva Fernandes has also further stated that she was singled out for discrimination when all other applications for LTC from the Gazette Officers in the department were promptly cleared.
