BBC: Croatia charges hundreds in drug firm corruption probe

We need to follow Croatia’s example, but if the same charges were to filed in the US, due to the massive payoffs to doctors here as made evident in the “Dollars for Docs” program that Senator Grassley started when he began investigating the Pharma funding of physicians and groups purporting to be support groups like NAMI (National Alliance for the Mentally Ill who, Senator Grassley found, gains 75% of their funding from Pharma), our court system would be so completely overloaded there would be no time for any other cases to be presented!

But you will also notice that these serious charges against the drug company and doctors too were basically dismissed just as in the guilty verdict for RICO – racketeering in which Pfizer was found guilty a couple of years ago. They always find a way out – generally by buying their way out – same principle as the bribery they used with the doctors which got the initial charges filed against them!

I encourage all of you to read and share this article to see that there are some countries who are finding the courage to stand up to these drug peddling drug companies who are little different than that shady character standing on the street corner selling his drugs.

BBC: Croatia charges hundreds in drugs firm corruption probe

The authorities in Croatia have charged a pharmaceutical company and 364 people – most of them reportedly doctors – for allegedly rigging the drugs market.

Senior managers at the drugs firm Farmal bribed a network of doctors and pharmacists to prescribe the company’s products, officials said.

They have been charged with bribery, abuse of power and corruption.

Local media said the indictment was the biggest of its kind in the country’s judicial history.

Bribery

Correspondents say the health system could have collapsed if all the doctors implicated were sacked. There are around 5,000 doctors in Croatia.

Many of those charged were given probation fines as a result, local media reported.

In a statement, Croatia’s anti-corruption agency Uskok said … (Click link below to continue reading)

She has specialized since 1990 in adverse reactions to serotonergic medications (such as Prozac, Sarafem, Zoloft, Paxil, Luvox, Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor, Serzone, Remeron, Anafranil, Fen-Phen, Redux and Meridia as well as the new atypical antipsychotics Zyprexa, Geodon, Seroquel and Abilify), as well as pain killers, and has testified before the FDA and congressional subcommittee members on antidepressants.

WITHDRAWAL WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants I always recommend that you also give reference to my CD on safe withdrawal, Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!, so that we do not have more people dropping off these drugs too quickly – a move which I have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!

WITHDRAWAL HELP: You can find the hour and a half long CD on safe and effective withdrawal helps here: store.drugawareness.org And if you need additional consultations with Ann Blake-Tracy, you can book one at www.drugawareness.org or sign up for one of the memberships for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness which includes free consultations as one of the benefits of that particular membership plan. You can even get a whole month of access to the withdrawal CD with tips on rebuilding after the meds, all six of my DVDs, hundreds of radio interviews, lectures, TV interviews I have done over the years PLUS my book on antidepressants with more information than you will find anywhere else for only $30 membership for a month (that is only $5 more than the book alone would cost) at www.drugawareness.org. (Definitely the best option to save outrageous postage charges for those out of the country!)
