Cofam Takes To The Streets Against Gmos

An Accra Fast Track High Court has granted the application filed by the Convention People’s Party (CPP) to join the case involving Food Sovereignty Ghana (FSG), the Attorney General (A-G) and others.

GMOs DemoThe CPP now becomes the second plaintiff in the case alongside FSG.

The defendants in the case are the National Biosafety Authority, Ghana National Association of Farmers and Fishermen, Ministry of Food And Agriculture and the National Bio-safety Committee.

Initially, the suit was against the National Bio-safety Committee and the Ministry of Food And Agriculture before the A-G was joined.

The Fast Track High Court, presided over by Mr Bright Essel Mensah, has adjourned the case to enable other interested parties to join.

Earlier, the Court granted an interlocutory injunction restraining the Ministry from commercialising the sale of genetically modified foods in the country.

The Court said the Agriculture Ministry cannot approve the sale of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) until it rules on the case brought before it by FSG.

The case has been adjourned to June 15.
