german archives. letters files of minutes outlining the role politics played during the criminal trial against the manufacture of grown into these documents should new light on what happened fifty five years ago. it isn't just british that it might survivors who are convinced they find lies in old british political parties. in feb twenty fifth an unusual debate takes place in the british parliament. mr michael moore thank you mr speaker for over fifty years the little misers have been campaigning for justice particularly from the german manufacturers. know that over one hundred fifty m.p.'s of signed an open letter to the german chancellor with the prime minister add this to his busy agenda today so that we might get a decent and fair settlement for all concerned. i have on behalf of
a constituent and she raised this issue not only through the european parliament but also with german authorities and i'll certainly reflect what the gentleman says . more than one hundred fifty british m.p.'s from all political parties have signed a letter to the german chancellor. unlike germany britain does have a tradition of rebellion when dealing with the little mite of the active ingredient i'm going to go to. the four hundred sixty six members of the trust not just fighting for compensation. they want those responsible for their disabilities to be held to account. is one of them thinks they have almost succeeded who have which ties and to whom and with his chart to explain the connections to german politicians as well as representatives in the european parliament if they hadn't ended the trial as they did in the early seventy's then the evidence would have been available to the victims to use in their future actions against another's and
in particular the u.k. survivors action in the seventy's would have undoubtedly have been ended in a much more favorable fashion too to the claimants as it was they didn't have the evidence they had to settle for a much bigger discount in the amount that they should have got than would have to bow to being the case if there's evidence to be got a proper settlement and that's what threw them out as they're after now. the british lawyer thinks evidence of that confidential meeting is crucial it took place in july nine hundred sixty nine but the ministry of health and bone. senior management from com to guns manufacturer were invited to discuss the settlement of the counter gun case according to a note from the ministry. the goal of the meeting is to reach a legal agreement with the company as to how country gun victims can be compensated . when the parents association of the deformed children hits of the plan's hand
asks to see details of the meeting the ministers say is under no circumstances will the association receive any details as it does. because our. document the. or. signs all those of you how kind of all are. doing for along with. the district half a century later in the summer of twenty fifteen a meeting between british that it might victims and representatives of the german government took place at germany's embassy in london i think they heard the concerns we had they obviously refute the fact that they interfered in the criminal trial but they've never actually answered individually the documents that we put to them. the british m.p. simon horn was also present at the german embassy meeting. and. it was really i think to hobbes the first half i thought was very positive so clear the
mood music coming out from officials on the on the german side of the table as it were it was very encouraging that they wanted to have a dialogue they wanted to see this brought to a conclusion we had to leave as we had to go back to the commons to vote and then the notes following that seem to suggest that they slightly dried up like clapton and it was very much we're not going to get involved with this this is the only meeting we're going to have to discuss this effectively that's the end of the news i think if there was anything which came out of the meeting which we had. the embassy in july of last year is that there had been a long debate point as to whether the drug which had been taken by british mothers had been manufactured in germany or had been manufactured under license in the u.k. and it is now very clear that the german officials taking entirely the point that the thirty five trust in the u.k. has been making for many
a long year that there was knows the manufactured in the u.k. and that which was taken by british mothers or expectant about those have been very factored in germany. this is knowledge facility might victims receive decades too late since the one nine hundred seventy s. people affected by so little might have only been able to file compensation applications with the german government anyone who does file an application must renounce all claims against the manufacture of. many european victims say they have received little or no compensation at all. the federal ministry of family affairs declined to be interviewed. nor would it comment on the meeting with british counter gun victims at the german embassy in london. it stated only that the counter gun trust fund grants financial support when claims are grounded. christi and alltel also applied for support.
yeah it's my new clown from college don't have one as an instance of one as good here or. box spring bet me are always going to tarboro. you on this good bye to how it's one of the no armored mission to get in. clear investment of the east does baskets work issuance and if you show up at the office of a new get this work. that he has been. how can we spend a third of our lives in our beds our beds are important and for it to be turned down on that basis is utterly ridiculous and so it's abundantly clear to me that applying to the call to go isn't going to be a solution for us at all and so therefore for us to be subjected to a ridiculous system bureaucratic system at this point in our lives it's not going
to meet our needs all we need is money that we can use in the ways that we know that will suit us best. the formosa little manufacturer no longer considers claims from the victims of the drug to be their responsibility. the tougher. side. want to. of course with tiny unclogging going to an innocent or to get you double tough no they're fun to put up for when tiger seeded border. of i know him from life and until own just its. supporters not paid by grown until but the federal government. one of many who is applications to the german county gun foundation were denied this lorraine mercer sometimes i do know now because.
a few months back i'm planning. on moving. it's getting. some of the late complications are only now becoming apparent murcer need supplementary oxygen just to be able to breeze there is a fund in germany connected to the court against gift which allows the later might is to apply to it for financial assistance there's also a fund that's been set up by agreement to apply to that but you could apply to them saying you wanted some more money but you have to prove first why. you've applied to a little more trust to get some money and that they said no and that you've applied to all the charities and you've tried to local government get assistance when you've been rejected by everybody you can then ask green atar they would like to contribute some money towards your. financial assistance but you're not really aware that because green atar hasn't made it public to the little writers outside
of germany in fact the company established a private foundation. however does not want to talk about it nor do they want to discuss how application decisions are made they say they don't want to provoke envy . we please the general government should be responsible for paying for those i met helpful is that we or have a new flame only get that money remains need to be met. in great britain so robert nelson is a well known judge he's written to the german federal ministry of family affairs. the purpose of the letter was to bring home to the german government the problems that the flu the midas face and the shortfall in finances that we felt they had in the amount they got and the amount that they would in fact need i wrote it to the relevant minister and there was no reply as.
for decades parents never knew what was going on behind their backs during the criminal trial they were only allowed to be spectators. the thalidomide manufacturers defense strategy was to convince the prosecution to agree to dismiss the case. they knew that they didn't just have the regional government justice minister on their side but the federal government too however the dismissal of a criminal case requires strict. conditions these according to the prosecution service meant.
about your sudden passing i've only just learned you worry yourself and taken your last turn. your attitude up to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry but only i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each fret. but then my feeling started to change you talked about war like it was a cave still some are fond of you those that didn't like to question our ark and i secretly promised to never feel like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters the mind gets consumed with death this was quite different i speak out because there were no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met its make.
me. feel on a hard day at the dinner table bottle sorry show the six oir here in the. area. an estimated eighteen falsehoods under a trophy jeans are now living in greece. you know still more go. to your home in the view of the ring. and many sell their bodies just to make ends meet it's. really the second or third year in all the sins in there that they're helpless as an alumnus but it. also has thirds or dealing drugs to make a living. listless a little is a lot of words a little. bit with a new. who.
in some american cities the police have built themselves cling to reputation people who walk on the streets of the united states are at risk from the very people who are supposed to protect that people are no more afraid of the police than of the terminals. you can see something happening and this is like i don't want to call the cops have been a resident call the cops in those young black men lose their lives chasing the with that thing goes on the trigger you never know better safe than sorry i don't know that someone else is going to pull a gun so yes unfortunately around around here we end up killing our guns off the death toll from such but cool place to be like when over. the new global economic war is unfolding in the realm of education the right to
education being supplanted by the right to access education low it's high education is becoming just another product that can be bullshit and sold but it's not just about education anymore it's also about running a business and what you good. luck with the souls. of them you. want is the place of students in this business model before college i was born and now and i'm extremely more higher education the new global economic wall. what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president or injury. or some want to. have to go right to be cross the survival before three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the
waters in the house. this should. terrorists sheldon huge humanitarian corridor in the syrian region of eastern preventing civilians from leaving the water on district. israeli soldiers arrest ten people in a raid on the palestinian village including a fifteen year old boy who severe head injury was allegedly inflicted by the i.d.f. two months ago. and a computer recycling expert in the us faces jail and a hefty fine for pirating microsoft software that he says he was only trying to refurbish old p.c.'s. i think it was helping people extend the life cycle of their electronics to combat planned obsolescence and to make sure that we keep as much working product out of landfills as possible.
