"Frankenstein foods" suffered a setback when eco-warriors Jacqueline Sheedy and Elizabeth Snook walked free from Plymouth Crown Court. The pair, represented by Mark Schwartz of Bindman & Partners, had originally faced charges of causing u605,000 worth of criminal damage after joining a 20-strong group of protesters scything down a crop of genetically-modified maize with machetes at Hood Barton Farm in Dartington. In a surprise decision understood to have been made by the Director of Public Prosecutions, David Calvert-Smith QC, prosecutors dropped the charges, declining to challenge the protesters' argument that they were "acting to protect the environment and the public from the unknown dangers of genetic engineering" - thus denying them the opportunity to explain the dangers in open court.
