Parliament Rejects Total Ban on GMO Products

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, February 2, 2018 – The Croatian Parliament on Friday amended the Environmental Protection Act, under which public institutions that manage national and nature parks will have to pay three percent of revenues from tickets and vignettes sold into the state budget.

The funds paid into the budget will be used for financing the priority activities of the public institutions concerning environmental protection and conservation, business upgrade, coverage of expenses, public procurement, promotion and marketing.

Also amended was the Genetically Modified Organisms Act. MPs rejected an amendment put forward by Miro Bulj of the opposition MOST party for a total ban on the cultivation, import and marketing of GMO products in Croatia.

“If you don’t adopt this, Croatian citizens will become guinea pigs for foreign GMO producers such as Monsanto and others. Let’s protect domestic production,” Bulj said, but his proposal failed to receive sufficient support.
