February 2001 Report
On 15 February they had a Judicial Review at The High Court in London which they lost. They will now proceed towards a trial by magistrate for criminal damage.
Trial: 18 June at Harwich Magistrates' Court
Eleven local people (Andy Abbott, Ken & Edie Butcher, Andrew Curtis, Dave Isaacson, Julie Moore, Tracy Osben, Lynn & Sarah Priest, Dean Scott and Nikki Shilaker) were arrested and charged with criminal damage after decontaminating Aventis GM fodder maize last July. Their case was assigned to a Magistrate's Court which prompted them to apply for a Judicial Review in an attempt to overturn this decision.
