According to the article, Malaysia will be the only country where the release of GM mosquitoes have been released. The petition's creator Cheah Hooi Giam, says that Malaysia doesn't have the resources to test, control or otherwise deal with the GM'd insects, and questions the relationship between government, citizens and "commercial interests."
PETALING JAYA: Concerned citizens who are against the proposed release of genetically modified (GM) male mosquitoes in certain parts of the country have started an online petition campaign to get their message across the nation.
The online petition, titled “No to the release of GM mosquitoes in Bentong and Alor Gajah”, was initiated by Cheah Hooi Giam from Penang and has so far garnered 290 signatories.
