On June 28, 2011, the court of Poitiers in central France acquitted eight defendant Volunteer Reapers (les Faucheurs Volontaires) for destroying a genetically modified field trial in 2008. Among those acquitted were anti-globalist Jose Bove and Francois Dufour, recognized as "repeat offenders." The court also dismissed Monsanto's financial claims. Apart from their own legal expenses, the Reapers owe nothing for the 2008 mowing of a GM field trial of Monsanto's GM corn, Mon810 x Nk603. The trial marked the third court victory for Volunteer Reapers. Previously, the Chartres 58 and the Orleans 49 were also acquitted, notes the Inf'OGM press release.
