Greenpeace Wins GM Foods Case Against Russian Institute

The Moscow City court has ordered Russian Nutrition Institute to publish
results of safety tests for 13 genetically modified plants allowed in
Russia, Ekho Moskvy radio station reported. Greenpeace has been asking
the Russian Health Ministry to do it for three years and finally had to
appeal to a court. Now the Nutrition Institute which keeps all the
documents has to distribute the information within a month. The first
case against the ministry was filed in November 2004. A local court in
Moscow ruled in favor of Greenpeace but the officials refused to provide
the documents. Now their activities have been found illegal. After
Greenpeace receives the information about the GM plants, it will carry
out an independent test to verify their safety for people, the
organization said.
