Bulgaria Environment Minister, Nona Karadzhova, has stated that the new changes in the Law on Genetically Modified Organisms will not threaten the environment or human health.
Karadzhova, speaking after recent protests against the proposed changes to the GMO Act, said “we are totally against the introduction of GMOs.” Shae added that the new law only applies to laboratory tests and GM Crop field trials.
Karadzhova continued that the Health Minister, Bozhidar Nanev, has ordered a public register to be created in which all authorizations for GMO cultures in the European and Bulgarian markets are recorded.
