Papers Filed in High Court (GE Free NZ Media Release).
Papers have been filed in the High Court, Wellington, on the applications for genetically modified animals made to the Environmental Risk Management Authority (ERMA).
The four applications by AgResearch seek indefinite commercial approval for genetic modification of 27 animal species using human and monkey cell lines e-coli and yeast, viral vectors. These animals will be farmed at unspecified sites around the country.
"We are hoping to have our case heard as soon as possible" says Claire Bleakley from GE Free NZ in food and environment.
GE Free had warned ERMA last week about the possibility of court action.
