News reports from Europe are suggesting that all the hype and hysteria over swine flu was a manufactured threat with no basis in reality. British member of Parliament Paul Flynn said “We want to know who decided the level of risk.” He is asking. “Was it decided on medical and health grounds or was it decided to meet the priorities of making profits of the pharmaceutical organizations.”
The World Health Organization (WHO) is accused of exaggerating the swine flu threat and has begun a week long meeting in Geneva. Critics accuse the organization of having been too quick to proclaim a pandemic. Some claim that the WHO may have been influenced by the big drug companies, keen to make large profits on a new vaccine. The German news outlet, Deutsche Welle reports that “At least some former WHO pandemic specialists now work for the companies producing the vaccine”: http://www.dw-world.de/dw/article/0,,5142807,00.html
Called the “greatest medical scandal of the century to come under scrutiny”, international hearings begin on “falsified” swine flu pandemic. The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, a 47 nation body encompassing democratically elected members of parliament, has begun hearings to investigate whether the H1N1 swine flu pandemic was falsified or exaggerated in an attempt to profit from vaccine sales.
The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) has stated it will launch an inquiry in January 2010 on the influence of pharmaceutical companies on the global swine flu campaign, focusing especially on extent of the pharma industry’s influence on the World Health Organization (WHO).
A resolution calling for an investigation into the influence that drugmakers may have had on the World Health Organization, scientists and governments was signed and supported by more than a dozen members of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe and passed unanimously by the Health committee. The resolution was introduced by Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, a member of Germany’s Social Democratic Party who chairs the Health Subcommittee of PACE.
In his statement to the Health Committee, Dr. Wodarg, criticized the influence of the pharma industry on scientists and officials of WHO, stating that it has led to the situation where “unnecessarily millions of healthy people are exposed to the risk of poorly tested vaccines,” and that, for a flu strain that is “vastly less harmful” than all previous flu epidemics.
The inquiry will look into the issue of “falsified pandemic” that was declared by WHO in June 2009 on the advice of its group of academic experts, SAGE, many of whose members have been documented to have intense financial ties to the same pharmaceutical giants such as GlaxoSmithKline, Roche, Novartis, who benefit from the production of drugs and untested H1N1 vaccines. They will investigate the influence of the pharma industry in creation of a worldwide campaign against the so-called H5N1 “Avian Flu” and H1N1 Swine Flu. The inquiry will be given “urgent” priority in the general assembly of the parliament. http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=16667
