Source: GNA - 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.
The 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.

For example, a UK government-funded study demonstrated that rats fed a GM potato developed potentially pre-cancerous cell growth, damaged immune systems, partial atrophy of the liver, and inhibited development of their brains, livers and testicle..
Rats fed GM corn had problems with blood cell, kidney and liver formation. Mice fed GM soy had problems with liver cell formation and pancreatic function, and the livers of rats fed GM canola were heavier. Pigs fed GM corn on several Midwest farms developed false pregnancies or sterility. Cows fed GM corn in Germany died mysteriously. And twice the number of chickens died when fed GM corn compared to those fed natural corn. > See also our Special, about GMOs (Gen-"Food") <
