PESTICIDES AS POISONS: ANALYSIS OF THE GEBREV CASE

On 19th February, Bellingcat carried a further article about a poisoning incident in Bulgaria in April 2015, where an individual named Emilian Gebrev was poisoned.  It considers examining the various chemicals mentioned in the analysis report of the possible chemicals used, as these chemicals are poisonous and have potential for deliberate use to make people ill or even kill them.  The report includes a list of organophosphate pesticides that the testing institute believes might have been responsible for this particular poisoning, and all of which attack the human nervous system in ways similar to military nerve agents.  Any of these chemicals could have been used to poison food or drink.
