Danish Scientist Who “Debunked” Autism-Vaccine Connection Indicted in Money Laundering, Wire Fraud
American prosecutors are seeking to extradite a Danish scientist who a federal grand jury in Atlanta has charged with 13 counts of wire fraud and nine counts of money laundering.
It is alleged that over the four-year period, Poul Thorsen submitted over a dozen false invoices from the CDC for research expenses to Aarhus University, where he held a faculty position, instructing them to transfer the funds to a CDC account, which was in fact his personal account.
“Grant money for disease research is a precious commodity,” noted Sally Quillian Yates, from the US Attorney’s office for the Northern District of Georgia, in a news release. “When grant funds are stolen, we lose not only the money, but also the opportunity to better understand and cure debilitating diseases.”
Thorsen’s research on autism is widely known in academic circles, where he was until this week a highly respected figure. A paper of his on the subject, which is known as ‘The Danish Study’, is quoted extensively to refute the autism vaccine connection.
Sounds like Mr. Thorsen got a bit greedy after all of the lavish luxury of his Big Pharma buddies disappeared and they were done using him.
This scientist’s work has been the “go-to source” for those trying to debunk the vaccine/autism connection. His work was widely publicized while the original work, showing a connection between the two, was typically buried or not discussed. I bet if you were to continue tracking this money or his connections, contacts and conversations, we would certainly see a connection between Big Pharma entities and Mr. Thorsen. http://www.truthistreason.net/danish-scientist-who-debunked-autism-vaccine-connection-indicted-in-money-laundering-wire-fraud
