The pharma giant, Pfizer was being charged in a controversial drug trial involving children with meningitis. So, of course, Pfizer hired investigators to find evidence of corruption against the Nigerian attorney general in order to persuade him to drop legal action against the company. These are just some of the revelations, involving big business like Pfizer and Shell, in the Wikileaks cables.
Did you need to know this? I’m glad I do. I hope it goes some distance in preventing companies like Pfizer in using my children as guinea pigs.
