Justice Dept. Investigating Claims That Drug Companies Funded Terrorism in Iraq

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department is investigating claims that major drug and medical device companies doing business in Iraq knew that the free medicines and supplies they gave the government to win business there would be used to underwrite terrorist attacks on American troops.
In a regulatory filing last week, AstraZeneca, a drugmaker based in Britain, disclosed that it had “received an inquiry from the U.S. Department of Justice in connection with an anti-corruption investigation relating to activities in Iraq.”
The filing said the inquiry was related to a lawsuit filed last year in federal court that accused five companies of winning contracts to sell their products to the Iraqi Ministry of Health with the understanding that they also provide additional medical supplies and medicines for free. The five companies are General Electric, Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Roche Holding A.G. and AstraZeneca.
The lawsuit was filed on behalf of members of the American military who were injured or killed in attacks from 2005 to 2009, at the height of the Iraq war.

Washington is opening an investigation with US companies that have provided the Ministry of Health with drugs sold by militias to counter attacks

The Euphrates -
 
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The US Justice Department is investigating the activities of Iraqi drug companies accused of offering drugs and pharmaceutical equipment to the Iraqi government free of charge, although they know it will be re-sold on the black market to finance terrorist attacks, AstraZeneca, one of these companies said.

During the publication of its semi-annual results last week, AstraZeneca said it had received a request from the US Department 'for an investigation into corruption in Iraq'.

The request explains that the investigation is linked, at least in part, to a lawsuit filed in October in a court in Washington on behalf of veteran US soldiers killed or wounded in Iraq between 2005 and 2009.

Prosecutors accuse AstraZeneca and its rivals Pfizer, Roche, Johnson & Johnson and American giant General Electric, which manufactures medical imaging equipment, of violating US anti-terrorism laws.

And hoping to enter the markets in Iraq, these groups may have provided samples of medicines and medical equipment to the Iraqi Ministry of Health, which was controlled by the militias.


AstraZeneca said in a statement that it had a "robust and vital program for the implementation of the law" and that it "does not accept bribes or other forms of corruption."
