Blame it on the North
Yet another example of alarmist journalism on behalf of the state broadcaster that raises the following questions. If, as the report states, the CyCentral Intelligence Agency has evidence of livestock being smuggled from the north, why have they not detained anyone for questioning?
If, as the report states, FMD may have been transmitted to the south by these animals, then why has there been no testing for the disease in the north?
What, if anything, are these journalists in the public employ doing to secure evidence to back up these unsubstantiated reports?
Maybe it's a matter of the intelligence agency always being right.
Of course one could be fickle and wonder how a confidential report was leaked to a broadcaster.
