Bayer-owned agrochemical giant Monsanto, which has recently been ordered to pay a groundskeeper $289 million in damages over Roundup’s alleged cancer link, may be facing many more legal fights soon.
Lawyers involved in the California lawsuit against the firm claim they have revealing documents about Monsanto and its affairs in Europe.
“What we have is the tip of the iceberg. And in fact we have documents now in our possession, several hundreds of documents, that have not been declassified and some of those are explosive,” US lawyer Robert Jr. Kennedy was cited as saying by Euronews.
According to Kennedy, many of those documents “are pertinent to what Monsanto did here in Europe. And that’s just the beginning.”
