Those who wish to keep their secrets under lock and key must be having sleepless nights of late, none more so than the pharmaceutical industry.
Many cases against pharma are settled before they even reach the steps of many court rooms, with the settlement comes the sealing of evidence and a statement of 'No liability' from pharma.
Recently the controversial website Wikileaks has released documents that show how Pfizer hired investigators to uncover corruption links to Nigeria’s Federal Attorney General Michael Aondoakaa and leaked reports of alleged corruption to local Nigerian media outlets in February and March of 2009.
Why would Pfizer do this?
Well, at the time it was alleged that Pfizer conducted an illegal clinical trial on Nigerian children during a 1996 meningitis outbreak. The Nigerian government was seeking $8.5 billion in restitution and damages as well as jail terms for various Pfizer officials.
It does not surprise me that they would resort to such tactics.
There will be many squeaky bums throughout the world of pharma. A disgruntled pharma employee, or even an employee from the many offices of attorneys who have had access to items of disclosure in pharmaceutical litigation trials may just get itchy fingers and start typing to Wikileaks.
I can wait.
