Eurogroup for Animals filing complaint against European Commission


Eurogroup for Animals will be filing a complaint of maladministration against the European Commission with the European Ombudsman.


The Group is of the opinion that by delaying action on the cloning of animals for food, the Commissison has failed to respect the EU Directive for the protection of farm animals, which states that reproductive techniques which cause animals to suffer cannot be used. On 13 January in Strasbourg the Commissioners had decided to put off submitting a proposal, seeing need for more scientific answers as well as a debate with international trading partners.
