MHRA - A FOUR YEAR INVESTIGATION

Dear Seroxat Sufferers,

Please see below my request under the FOI to the MHRA and their subsequent response.

It seems they are investigating (see link) but this 'investigation' has almost reached 4 years!

Another whitewash?

Dear Mr Fiddaman.

REF: FOI 06/397

Thank you for your enquiry of 4th December 2006. I am writing to let you know that we are unable to supply the information you have requested. Under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) certain exemptions apply to the information we can make available. The information you have requested concerns a criminal investigation and is subject to the exemption contained in the FOIA, namely exemption 30. We have concluded that disclosing this information would not be appropriate because it would prejudice an ongoing criminal investigation. I am satisfied that both categories in exemption 30 are applicable;

a) where information has at any time been held for the purpose of specified criminal and other investigations or proceedings; and

b) where information relates to the obtaining of information from confidential sources and was obtained or recorded for a number of specified investigations or proceedings.

Therefore it would not be in the public interest to disclose the outcome of the criminal investigation in advance of any potential court proceedings.
