I have been tracking the Séralini story since he first published his results which showed tumours in rats fed Monsanto GM maize. Controversially, he duplicated the Monsanto testing regime, knowing and discussing in his paper that it was a statistically marginal situation scientifically, and then got pilloried for it by Monsanto and others, who followed up by grabbing control of the editorial board of the journal and had his paper withdrawn after it had been published. All predictable behaviour. The only thing of surprise was that they didn’t have sufficient control to begin with to prevent its publication.
But Séralini has been fighting back, with wins in the courts:
On 22 September a judge in the Criminal Court of Paris found Marc Fellous guilty of forgery and the use of forgery in order to defame Prof Gilles-Eric Séralini and CRIIGEN, a research association which focuses on the risks of genetic engineering and pesticides and the development of alternatives.
Marc Fellous is a GMO proponent who was formerly President of the Biomolecular Engineering Commission (CGB), which assessed the safety of GMOs in France for the ministries of agriculture and environment from 1998 to 2007. In 2016 he became president of the French Association for Plant Biotechnology, a lobby group that was set up to promote GM crops.
Last November Fellous lost a libel case to Séralini. The court ruled that Fellous had defamed Séralini.
During that court case, Fellous used or copied the signature of a scientist without his agreement (“forgery” and “use of forgery”) to argue that Séralini and his co-researchers were wrong in their reassessment of Monsanto studies. The Séralini team’s re-assessment reported finding signs of toxicity in the raw data from Monsanto’s own rat feeding studies with GM maize.
The new court ruling means that Fellous will be sentenced in a few months’ time – probably in early 2017 – at a public correctional hearing. The use of forgery in a court case is a serious offence and may result in a jail sentence.
The ruling marks a second court victory this year for Prof Séralini, his research team, and CRIIGEN. On September 7 they won a libel suit in the Appeals Court against Marianne magazine and its journalist Jean-Claude Jaillette, who repeated the defamatory words of the American pro-tobacco and -GMO lobbyist Henry I. Miller.
End of quote.
Of course, most people won’t know a thing about all of this, as the steamroller of GM foods continues across the planet, continuing this particular path of attack upon the human population. What surprises me in the above is there are still elements of the court process that are not similarly controlled. Europe does seem to be lagging the US in this regard. Give them time.
