Conservationists demand Gunns apology.

Conservationists demand Gunns apology. 25/11/2005. ABC News Online

The Wilderness Society is demanding an apology from a timber company following changes to a multi-million dollar writ against 20 environmentalists.

Gunns Limited is suing the conservationists for alleged damage to their business and reputation.

The society says Gunns' third statement of claim dropped some original allegations of criminal conspiracy and guerilla activities.

The society's legal coordinator, Greg Ogle, said the claims were hurtful and the defendants deserve an apology.

"Dropping these allegations has meant that the flavour of the case has changed a bit," he said.

"Dropping these claims of criminal damage type things makes it much more clear what this case is actually about."

Gunns chairman John Gay refused to comment on the changes.

The case is likely to be back before the Victorian Supreme Court early next year.
