There are no independent EFSA specialists?!

Recently the president of EFSA, Catherine Geslain-Lanéelle, said in relation to a question about the independece of her specialist: that if what necessary to remove all with ties to (the GMO) industry there would be no one left (Le Monde 2009-06-30 page 18), and that a good expert that has not worked in the industry would be suspicious. Which of course is peculiar since they are by EU law required to be independent of the interests they are evaluating ... So for now it seems one cannot truly expect EFSA to be really rigorous in its evaluation of new (and old) GMO products.
