"concerning medicinal products containing or consisting of GMOs intended to treat or prevent COVID‐19, an environmental risk assessment or consent in accordance with Directive 2001/18/EC or Directive 2009/41/EC are not a prerequisite".
And section (13): "In this situation of public health emergency, it is of major interest for the Union that safe and efficacious medicinal products intended to treat or prevent COVID-19 can be developed and be made available within the Union as soon as possible".
This effectively allows to speed up the vaccine development process and removes legal barriers (including risk assessments and patient consent) for the administration of covid-19 vaccines, on the basis of "safeguarding public health", and for as long as the WHO continues declaring covid-19 as a global pandemic.
I am no lawyer, just a father, husband and an engineer, but the first challenge to this unlawful directive that I see may be the fact that the WHO is co-funded by the same entities that are developing the vaccines for covid-19 (e.g. Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation - please see WHO funders in wikipedia). Therefore this constitutes a flagrant conflict of interest, and may invalidate any legal text based on criteria from the WHO with regard to administration of vaccines.
The directive was silently put forward by the European Commission on the 13th July, and has already been picked-up by the UK government, as EU regulation will continue to apply until the end of the transition period on 31/12/2020. For the UK transposition see also:
Please share this with as many people as possibly, via all channels that you can access. I will try and reach Simon Dolan in case he is still unaware of this. We must stand and fight this and will need legal support. This is a defining moment that will determine what type of world and future we will build and accept for us, our children and fellow human beings.
In unity and compassion we will stand strong and will not be silenced or defeated.
