Scientist who cloned Dolly says Hwang is a baaaaaaah~d man

Sorry about the title. I'm always a sucker for a bad pun.

Anyway, the Korea Times reports that University of Edinburgh Professor Ian Wilmut, the man who cloned Dolly the sheep and one of beleaguered cloning scientist Hwang Woo-suk's "last staunch supporters," has said that Hwang does not deserve a second chance.
I do not think that he should lead a team again because of the lies that he has told.
He also added that there is promise for cloning in Korea, saying, "there are other people in the university and I hope that Korea will continue to have an interest in this technology."

According to the KT, Wilmut "admitted that Hwang and his crew have done advanced work but would not confirm Hwang’s reiterated claim that his team retains the world’s top cloning technology in gently squeezing genetic materials from human eggs."
