To whom it concerns,
I have written to lundbeck Ireland and also lundbeck Canada on Aug 8th 2010 but am still awaiting reply. My name is Leonie and my son’s name was Shane Clancy. He was 22 before cipramil killed him but you know that already, just as you know the side effects of these drugs. Murder and suicide.
Let me just explain that I know what is going on at Lundbeck and I can also prove it. I have been in touch with John Virapen who worked for you in the Caribbean. His stories of bribing officials and doctors first class trips with all expenses paid to Denmark and corruption in general make for very interesting listening. You will not get away with murdering my son.
I would also be very interested to know if Shane’s death was logged as an adverse reaction!
