Twins born possibly with editted genome. There seem doubts about whether this really did edit genome.

"Prof He Jiankui says the twin girls, born a few weeks ago, had their DNA altered as embryos to prevent them from contracting HIV."

Also there seems doubts about whether it should have been allowed. Does the judge have any comments on such a situation where it has happened but country has not specifically permitted it / has banned it / is scientific misconduct, but despite lack of permission / ban / misconduct, it has happened? I.e. is the claim about it being permitted or about it actually happening?

If it is about it happening not about it being permitted, then this case may need to be followed in order to give correct judgement and seems worth bringing to the judge's attention.

Best Regards

Chris
