The decision was taken today by the conference of the presidents, which includes the institution’s president and political group leaders, after the chemical multinational refused to participate in a hearing on glyphosate, a weedkiller that is used in Monsanto’s Roundup product.

The firm is suspected of influencing scientific assessments, on which EU decisions to authorise the product were based. (EUobserver / Le Soir)
