Militant French farmer and anti-globalisation activist Jose Bove has been ordered back to jail for destroying a field of GM crops. The Cour de Cassation, France’s most senior appeals court, ruled that Bove should go to jail for six months and pay a €7,622 (US$7,644) fine for attacking a filed of GM rice in 1999. He must also serve an eight-month sentence for an earlier attack on GM crops in France.
