On April 18, an International Tribunal publicly presented their recommendations on accusation against Monsanto, an US-based trans-national company, of crimes against human rights and ecology.
Concerning Monsanto’s involvement in supplying Agent Orange to the US military during the Vietnam War and allegations of ecological damage, the International Tribunal, based on provided evidences, could not make conclusions on Monsanto’s possibility to complicity in committing war crimes.
