GMOs, scientists against EU 'secret draft'

A formal protest has been presented by a group of European scientists to the President of the European Parliament Jerzy Buzek and the President of the EU Council Herman Van Rompuy, as the EU seems to be ready to turn into rule the liberalization of GM crops. According to the group, a "secret draft" of regulation has been submitted to the World Trade Organization for an opinion. "It is surprising how 'irregular' is the behavior of the EU Commission, which appears very clearly aimed at accelerating the process of GMOs approval in Europe", claims a group of scientists from all EU countries, after finding on the WTO (World Trade Organization) website the draft of a new "application rule" of EU legislation for the GMOs approval, presented in great secrecy by the Commission for a WTO opinion. A behavior that is considered a "misconduct'', as "the European Parliament and all competent authorities for GMOs are completely unaware of this draft."
