Switzerland holds genetic engineering referendum


SWITZERLAND is due to vote on a proposal to ban genetic engineering on Sunday.

It is the first country to hold a referendum on the issue. Leading Swiss life sciences companies Roche and Novartis have warned they would have to move much of their research abroad if the public voted for a ban.
