12:34 pm
saw him and everyone i'll see use. may 1983 so the 1st reported case of the british hemophiliac contracting the disease. appeared in the press claiming that factor 8 was a safe. in november of 84 he raised concerns about the products with his stopped and they told him this is just sensationalism it's fine you know don't worry they convinced him to carry on using fats concentrate and then it was only shortly after that the his 1st choice v tests came back as opposed to. things just very difficult for a strain on the relationship with my mom you know they'd only got married and nothing their life went from being one of planning for the future to planning for the end. to senior
12:35 pm
statements about one of the worst things being the feeling of sticking that. with relation to. it's in the early days christian people don't get i was right you were lower. i mean when we found out that he was positive felt such fear never felt little it's not the fear of what he might suffer it's it's social it's everything it's children it's housing it's your career is everything is gone it was something to be ashamed of even though we did nothing wrong he did nothing wrong i bring a prominent locally and then one night i walked into a pole to play mama and the landlord just pointed out mate and said you get out the pool tame i've been playing with but i also don't they're not one of them
12:36 pm
thought to be for me i thought sick. and i thought dead. this was a classic case of. infomed it. doesn't take away the fact that it made me feel a lot rubbish. my dad lost his job among got sidetracked her job they received hate mail phone calls making fun of. the stigma is incredible it's this whole thing though if you had a view you were gay or you were a drug user or some kind of what they sold to be an and desirable person. by 9190 nights a he'd become verio. he had progressed to
12:37 pm
a only opportunistic infections using off way slowly going through a horrible death. and. by the end of my 3. news news that. jason evans founded the independent campaign group factor 8 its members of the immediate relatives of him affiliates who died because of contaminated blood products his organization provides them with legal help. i really only had one goal when i got involved in campaigning on this subject i wanted it on the official record that what happened could and should have been avoided i think after that
12:38 pm
point maybe there's room for that as support for people counseling and compensation and all these other things but i think for me. so they once it's on the record that there is liability and then. in his community there are people who believe that it's ok. it's really hard there are no jobs and you see that i've got kids that ask and as a parent. i can come up with lots of arguments there's a lot of conflict in the game between the 2 most of the conflict i would say over
12:39 pm
balls around money and most of them money is made. close one on each other. each other is good because the state of california alone makes 6000000000 dollars a year of prison complexes you get some 20 a life where. you don't care about your so you care mind anything. what holds his hands to you so. he put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president or injury. or somehow want to. have to go right to be press this is what the before 3 of them or can't be good that. i'm interested in the waters about how. this should.
12:40 pm
we can see which perhaps most clearly important document to date stamp 10th of september 1976 so very soon after you would have been starting it should all go home and we can see the words have otitis rights was the existence of a risk of hepatitis something you or your parents were aware of the time last fall . cash cow and that is dari alfonzo mongery has died. he's died in. there he's died on lost one of the page service cherish unpaid change guard service or. at 11 years of age richard went to trial lawyers college a special boarding school for children with disabilities. there's an n.h.s. health center on the campus students could receive the medical care they needed and
12:41 pm
attend classes all in the same place. it's also the signs of the greatest concentration of contaminated blood cases that the u.k. has ever seen. ringback busy what it. is that you receive significant quantities of patsey rates of prophylactic they. are crazy about. aren't 2 real target joints and that was my left mate neither of our rights. or our current system why they would give me consecutive doses day after day. great britain will be self-sufficient in blood products and will guarantee their purity. it was the government's promise in the 1970s. when government came in that pledge in the name went away and they found a way around the. importing this particular product. all these
12:42 pm
issues were very often at meetings of 1015 people but they were all held in secret no one was allowed to publish the minutes of the meeting. the main beneficiaries of that secrecy were pharmaceutical companies. these companies had a huge financial motivation to sow these problems today. the fact concentrate market is a 1000000000 dollar industry in order for the need to say our product is safe for the next companies they needed a trial date that showed we've used this product and it's not infectious and in this country at least the dot is. often as consultants to the pharmaceutical home as there are numerous documents showing that doctors in oxford doctors in cardiff work keen to test facts or a concentrates infectivity on their patients to all hemophilia sense directors.
12:43 pm
initial production batches may have been tested for infectivity by injecting them into chimpanzees it is unlikely that the manufacturers will be able to guarantee this form of quality control for all future batches it is therefore very important find out why studies in human beings to what extent the infectivity of the various concentrates has been reduced. the reason they used humans instead of chimpanzees was one because chimpanzees were expensive and essentially patients were free when they don't know that experiment we tried to speak to the pharmaceutical companies that produced factory took the time over the last 50 years they have changed names and ownership several times and none wanted to talk about the contaminated blood issue now. what we know now is that the trolls are also conducting tests regularly and keeping records of liver function tests which
12:44 pm
made you think ok so what are they actually looking for figuring in a safe product to be one to monitoring how you live. or if you trace their rules are you cd for kanwar with looking at these things. out of the 8. 9 hemophiliacs who went to train those college 72 died. and people are still dying. or from liver related problems wish to have a charge say. i actually feel guilty i'm still here i asked myself the question why am i still alive when you know 70 percent of the him feel that boy use the rats college. i've had and i don't care and i'm always question yourself why me
12:45 pm
i why my son i live by being allowed to live when so many have and. the official claim was that the new medicines were safe the most emphatic statement to that effect was from kenneth clark health secretary under margaret thatcher's government. i think someone that really has a lot to answer for as a minister is. the well known kenneth clarke actually stood up for an argument and said there is no conclusive proof. is transmitted through blood products he really needs to answer for putting out that type of misinformation and this was the reply we received from kenneth clocks office and chris the clock has chosen to decline this request and from the u.k.
12:46 pm
department of health the infected blood inquiry is a cabinet of its leaders and therefore they will be the ones best placed to answer your questions beyond that initial acknowledgement the cabinet office has not responded to our request. and all we could find on the official u.k. national health service website was a report mentioning that victims are entitled to apply for compensation. 2019 and for the 1st time the u.k. government agreed to hear what the victims had to say a public inquiry was opened in london and jason evans group factories is taking part in it is finally happening it's been. a long road and this is a this train journey is one that i say him countless times over the last 34 years. even before jason was born his father was aware of the deadly disease. in spite of
12:47 pm
the risk of causing on the contamination his baby was born. after i think about how would i have dealt with what my dad went next year i'll be the same age my dad was when he died. i think about if i was to die i didn't a share that age that would have been really a very short life. that weighs heavily on my mind. in 1903 tina and. yes. accident shall we say. the wife knew pretty soon after and she went to see her
12:48 pm
doctor. where we were advised really in no uncertain terms. to look at. it was all in those few months all mixed up together and at the time we were still reeling from the shock and the implications of dealing with the diagnosis i could have been positive in which case what we you know we were bringing approach child at that time to be an orphan if you to come into the world we didn't know how long we have or the child could have been positive as well as me in which case was it morally right to give birth to a child that i be you know suffered terribly i couldn't walk away from a man who i spose to love just when he needed me in worlds. and once we found out that i was ok afterwards. he. realized that if i was going to be a mother it wouldn't be with richard and i just say with richard he said you're
12:49 pm
a perfect stream really loving and supportive wife yes she's shifting jenny. but it's. a serious a great sadness to base this fee that you have to have children. to be able to make that. anything you. have to say at the time it seemed easy i didn't feel as if we had any choice sally lacey a thing. but. martin
12:50 pm
bed was also thinking of starting a family his girlfriend was a nurse at the hospital where he received his treatment. i've got the dial m. earth hemophilia pass and not on the don lemon or of a child of a not just infecting her but possibly possibly on to children as well so took the decision after about a year to split tilt so that hopefully she could go off and have a family of our own and thankfully she did and we're still friends on facebook so you know and she seems happy which is good. this is a very very apt rebate and that such a. very loyal dogs rottweilers are very protective as wild.
12:51 pm
animals are one of the greatest comfort she can ever offer. because she can have the lousiest day in the world when you walk in that house and the dogs are pleased to see you. dogs know when you're in i mean i know when you're in trouble and. it's soothing. the. 2 attempts were made over 40 years to investigate the causes of this medical disaster in the u.k. but so far no one has been held accountable. the current inquiry is goal is to gather evidence the final decision about how to proceed after that will wrist with
12:52 pm
the government. i have very doubt that what happened was criminal i think the real question is to what degree was it credible i mean nothing bad meant i'm talking about some form of criminal negligence and perhaps corporate manslaughter perhaps as high as murdoch and i think the inquiry can help direct in some way where where those lines made. their criminal prosecutions have been brought in other countries and they have been successful particularly in france whether they will be brought in this country i suspect not the reason they won't bring them the crown prosecution service won't be directed to bring those prosecutions it's because it's widely accepted that they would be successful and the only way they can avoid a successful prosecution is to avoid bringing it.
12:53 pm
the public inquiry is expected to continue for at least 2 to 3 years too late for the victims who have already died and to long for those still fighting for their lives every day morning. first witnesses. he was so bright. i was told about a year to live it was a hard time it's so frightfully experience it wasn't a life. really treasure exams anymore because we did in a few years. i do feel i was it. came out the austrian e. like it isn't tome just want to sit down the house hard enough is no way should have to do that we just wanted to be with them. but. and i believe now
12:54 pm
is the time for justice. and all we ask for is recognition of our lives a meaningful recompense for the largest group of some who are stolen from those. places.
12:55 pm
interest rates are split and gapping in the spread is widening into what i call the interest rate apartheid if you're in the wrong side of the friends of jeffrey epstein you bantustan of extortion ery credit card rights if you're a friend of jeffrey abstain then you get the insider rate of negative and you get paid to lend money or to borrow money from from the bank. a paradise with some ground turned into a ground the experimentation field the agricultural chemicals we know that these chemicals have consequences they are major irritants there's no question otherwise why would the chemical company workers themselves be geared up that suited up locals attempt to combat the on regulated experiments good often in day you have
12:56 pm
many of these people one foot into the biotech pharma and the other foot in the government regulatory bodies this kind of collusion is reprehensible while the battle goes on the chemicals continue to poison hawaii and its people so one has to ask the question whether there is a form of environmental research going on in hawaii whether these companies feel they can get away with those because the people have less political power. in. the us to cope with them we said. yes but. there's an awful lot in common i'm old but i'm also the most amazing knows how to make it was easy. not all emotional when i meet.
12:57 pm
his compass he must be told most people even though he goes from didn't you notice or speak to c.b.c. just put to you hold your breath. and most of. the most amount you see him in the middle you kind of this will. come to your list. in his community there are people who believe that it's ok. it's really hard there are no jobs and you see that i've got kids. and as a parent. i can come up with lots of arguments there's a lot of conflict in the game between the teams most of the conflict i would say.
12:58 pm
is maybe. close one on each other. each other is good business the state of california alone makes 6000000000 dollars a year of prison complex just to get some 20 a life where. you don't care. anything. live. live. live. live. live live. live. live live.
12:59 pm
live live. live . live. live. oh. please. live. so. slim. please.
1:00 pm
