European Parliament to Investigate
WHO and "Pandemic" Scandal
by F. William Engdahl
The Council of Europe member states will launch an inquiry in
January 2010 on the influence of the pharmaceutical companies
on the global swine flu campaign, focusing especially on extent
of the pharma's industry's influence on WHO. The Health Committee
of the EU Parliament has unanimously passed a resolution calling
for the inquiry. The step is a long-overdue move to public transparency
of a "Golden Triangle" of drug corruption between WHO,
the pharma industry and academic scientists that has permanently
damaged the lives of millions and even caused death.
_The parliament motion was introduced
by Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, former SPD Member of the German Bundestag
and now Chairman of the European Parliament Health Committee.
Wodarg is a medical doctor and epidemiologist, a specialist in
lung disease and environmental medicine, who considers the current
"pandemic" Swine Flu campaign of the WHO to be "one
of the greatest medicine scandals of the Century."
The text of the resolution just passed
by a sufficient number in the Council of Europe Parliament says
among other things, "In order to promote their patented drugs
and vaccines against flu, pharmaceutical companies influenced
scientists and official agencies, responsible for public health
standards to alarm governments worldwide and make them squander
tight health resources for inefficient vaccine strategies and
needlessly expose millions of healthy people to the risk of an
unknown amount of side-effects of insufficiently tested vaccines.
The "bird-flu"-campaign (2005/06) combined with the
"swine-flu"-campaign seem to have caused a great deal
of damage not only to some vaccinated patients and to public health-budgets,
but to the credibility and accountability of important international
The Parliamentary 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.
In his official statement to the Committee, 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.
Wodarg says the role of the WHO and its the pandemic emergency
declaration in June needs to be the special focus of the European
Parliamentary inquiry. For the first time, the WHO criteria for
a pandemic was changed in April 2009 as the first Mexico cases
were reported, to make not the actual risk of a disease but the
number of cases of the disease basis to declare "Pandemic."
By classifying the swine flu as pandemic, nations were compelled
to implement pandemic plans and also the purchase swine flu vaccines.
Because WHO is not subject to any parliamentary control, Wodarg
argues it is necessary for governments to insist on accountability.
The inquiry will also to look at the role of the two critical
agencies in Germany issuing guidelines on the pandemic, the Paul-Ehrlich
and the Robert-Koch Institute.
