Dear Casi members,
Tim Buckley's question:
"Would it be accurate, so far as we know, to say that supplies of chlorine, expected in Sept. 1997 would have been the first chlorine imports since sanctions began in 1990? Cheers, Tim"
It was in March 1991 that UNICEF and the ICRC first brought Chlorine into the country. At that time water tests showed no traces of Chlorine at all. In those days the main problem was as with many other items, no NGO or UN organization had the money to supply the amounts needed for a whole country. As far as I remember, during my time in 1991 and 1992 Chlorine was regularly supplied and distributed.
