Steptoe partner Darren Abrahams authored a guest opinion titled “Politics Never Excuses Maladministration” for the March 2016 issue of EuropaBio’s Green Biotech rEvolutions newsletter.  The article explains why political decision making regarding genetically modified (GM) products is unacceptable in view of the recent decision by the European Ombudsman that the Commission’s delays in authorization procedures for import and processing of GM food and feed constituted “systemic” maladministration.
