You Can’t Sue Them – But World’s Largest Vaccine Maker Is Suing Man For Saying COVID-19 Vaccine Injured Him
See how this works in fascism? You are not permitted to recoup damages from Big Pharma pimps when they harm you or your loved ones, but they sure are looking to take you down for telling the world they harmed you. The latest example is in the form of a new lawsuit filed by the world’s largest manufacturer Serum Institute of India (SII), in association with multinational pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca, seeks to set the standard to keep people’s mouths shut about the harm their products do to individuals.
In filing a INR 1 billion ($13.5 million) defamation case, the firm rejected the charges by the 40-year-old businessman, from the southern Indian city of Chennai, as “malicious”. The firm has also said the man’s illness had nothing to do with the vaccine trials.
“The volunteer is falsely laying the blame for his medical problems on the COVID vaccine trial,” said a statement issued by the Serum Institute, the world’s biggest vaccine manufacturer by the number of doses produced and sold globally.
The lawyers of the vaccine volunteer have called the defamation suit an “intimidation attempt.”
The participant alleged that undergoing the trials caused a “neurological and psychological” breakdown that impaired his cognitive abilities.
“Our client states that the severe trauma he went through from 11th October 2020, because of the ‘Acute Neuro Encephalopathy’ that he suffered, is an extreme side-effect of the test vaccine that he took on 1st October 2020,” said the anonymous participant’s legal representative in a notice. The man is demanding a compensation of INR 50 million ($676,000) from the Serum Institute, and has asked for the trials to be halted immediately.
According to the wife of the businessman, he “lost the ability to do simple tasks” such as making online payments, as well as lost his “creativity and confidence”.
Don Via, Jr. adds:
After participating in the trial study, the yet to be named volunteer flagged severe neurological and psychological symptoms 10 days after the first injection. Symptoms which were then diagnosed as acute neurological encephalopathy, resulting in memory loss, lapses in cognitive functions such as reasoning, and changes in personality. A legal notice had been sent to ICMR, DCGI, AstraZeneca and Oxford University to stop testing, manufacturing and distributing the vaccine. The plaintiff filed a suit after the notice failed to receive response.
SII then filed a countersuit, worth $13.5 million, for defamation after alleging that the volunteers illness had nothing to do with the vaccine trial. This is a statement which was also backed up by the Data and Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) and DCGI (Drugs Controllor General of India). However, these assertions have been challenged by independent researcher Dr. Anant Bhan, the former President of the International Association of Bioethics and current professor at India’s Yenepoya Medical University. Dr. Bhan notes that both of these institutions are government entities directly affiliated with SII, and stresses that transparency should be the top priority given that the parties vested financial interests.
Speaking to Indian national news outlet Firstpost, he claims that the countersuit is totally “uncalled for”, and called for transparency, stating —
“It’s an unusual response, because the reasons for volunteers to participate are altruistic. If there is a concern that a volunteer has, it’s good to engage with them and understand what those concerns are, and to make efforts to try and address them. It’s in the interest of the sponsor, and is also a signal to other participants already in the trial, and potential participants.”
“(It) could spook a few people, if and when a vaccine becomes available. When you do get into these situations, it’s better to be open and transparent,”
“It’s quite possible that everything they’re saying is true. But that doesn’t change the fact that there’s a conflict of interest,” said Bhan. “The regulator is being paid taxpayer money to be able to provide adequate oversight in these circumstances. The expectation is for the regulator to come forward and speak on the issue.”
It has also been alleged, both by the plaintiff’s attorneys, and spokesman for the AIDAN (All India Drug Action Network), that the countersuit amounts to “an attempt of intimidation.”
In a statement released by the former participants legal team, they say —
“This is a clear attempt to intimidate our client. Why else will they file a Rs.100 crore defamation suit. Our client is merely asking for Rs.5 crore compensation for the health problems he is facing and to take care of his family.”
“Moreover, if you look at their statement it is clear that they are unwilling to even investigate what exactly happened and if the side-effects are due to the vaccine. Our client wants the manufacturing of the vaccine to be stopped because he fears others could get affected the same way,” says advocate NGR Prasad, a practicing attorney of over five decades.
Spokesman for the AIDAN also said in a press release —
“Instead of explaining why they have been silent about the reports of the SAE, Serum Institute is attempting to divert public scrutiny of its trial. Bear in mind that in Serum’s Phase 2/3 trial, safety is one of the primary endpoints in addition to immunogenicity.” explained AIDAN.
“Given that the SAE took place in October, it is of serious concern that CDSCO did not pause the trial to investigate the SAE when it was reported. The silence from the CDSCO which granted permission for the trial is deafening.”
As I theorized on The Sons of Liberty Radio’s morning show on Friday, I suspect that there is quite a bit that the Food and Drug Administration, as well as many of these vaccine manufacturers do in order to keep their alleged liability at a minimum.
Just remember, you, the American government, have allowed this to occur. The Wall Street Journal reported:
The U.S. government paid out $4.4 billion over more than 30 years covering injuries relating to a host of vaccines—from flu to polio—but payouts for potential injuries from Covid-19 vaccines will be covered by a far less-generous program.
Covid-19 vaccine injuries will be covered under a program known as the “countermeasures injury” compensation fund, which was set up in 2010 to cover harm resulting from vaccines for a flu pandemic, or drugs to treat an anthrax or Ebola outbreak, for example.
This year, Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar said the countermeasures fund should also cover injuries from Covid-19 vaccines, giving drug companies immunity from potential liability lawsuits.
But the fund isn’t expected to offer much of a remedy to the public, according to lawyers and vaccine experts. Since it began processing claims, the fund has paid out $6 million on 29 claims, averaging $207,000 per person, compared with $585,000 on average per person for an older vaccine injury fund.
The fact of the matter is that most of these vaccine manufacturers are having all sorts of problems with their vaccines and the truth.
Live Mint reported that Bharat Biotech International, another Indian drug maker conducting COVID-19 vaccine trial, had a volunteer that had to be hospitalized due to adverse effects during a first phase trial in August.
Also, keep in mind that AstraZeneca’s vaccine, which they claim is 90 percent effective, was initially shown to only be 70 percent effective. The company blamed it on a “dose error,” but given the padding of numbers of the CONvid, along with the wrongheadedness of using the PCR test in the manner it is being used does make me wonder who is manipulating things.
Via concludes the real dangers are being covered up:
Even at the time of writing this, a new report has come out of yet more volunteer injuries taking place during another CV19 vaccine trial. This time resulting in facial paralysis, and including a document from the FDA which indicated 84% of participants experienced some sort of adverse reaction. And a separate report released by the FDA on the same day confirming two post-vaccine deaths in yet another trial.
But fret not, Reuters fact checked these claims and assures us there is nothing to worry about.
No causal relationship was established between the vaccine and the two deaths, which occurred in line with the normal death rate for the general population.
Four cases of Bell’s Palsy (partial facial paralysis) were also not considered to necessarily be caused by the vaccine but the symptom will be under surveillance when the vaccine is distributed.
Furthermore these concerns are compounded with the well-documented history of malfeasance by every major manufacturer involved and it’s production (see here, here, here, here, & here), specifically AstraZeneca in the case of this SII lawsuit, who is already exempt from liability of any potential damages caused by their current Covid-19 vaccine in development.
The ethical struggle to maintain bodily autonomy and freedom of choice via informed consent may be the new battle of our generation.
On a final note: Since literally billions of dollars are passing hands from fascists in government to fascists in Big Pharma and the people are kept from obtaining any justice when it comes to being harmed in these studies, does one really expect truth in advertising or in research in development? I sure don’t. It’s why I would never take their vaccine, never be involved in a study and demand the representatives in government, every single rep and the president, be held accountable for their unlawful use of the American people’s money to not only advance the fraud that is CONvid but also to enrich the Big Pharma pimps.
