Greenpeace takes legal action against Thailand over GM crop

The suspected prevalent contamination of Thai farms with genetically modified papaya has led to suing of the Thailand government by an international //environmental group called Greenpeace.

Greenpeace is to take legal action against those Thai Agriculture officials who permitted the supply of genetically engineered papaya seeds to farmers throughout the country.

Patwajee Srisuwan, who is a genetic engineering campaigner for Green Peace Southeast Asia, said, "We decided to sue the (Department of Agriculture) because we have been waiting for more than two years for them to do their duties."

Ms. Srisuwan said, “Our group is also asking Thailand's Department of Agriculture (DOA) to recall an order allowing open field testing of genetically modified (GMO) papaya and to order additional decontamination of papaya plants believed to be tainted by the genetically engineered fruit.”

She added, "Greenpeace tried every means to get the DOA to stop this massive GMO papaya contamination and end all GMO field trials, but the DOA and related government agencies failed to act to protect public interest."

For the improvement of agricultural production by making disease-resistant papaya, the Thailand government had been encouraging GMO research.
