The European Commission has refused to make public the messages between President Ursula von der Leyen and the CEO of pharmaceutical giant Pfizer Albert Borla. The matter was first reported by the site politician,

an article from new York Times Last April he reported of a relationship between Ursula and Borla that would be by telephone and text messages.

Now the European Commission claims it has no trace of the messages, as they are “short-lived” and therefore excluded from the collection process.

The European Commission claims it has no trace of the messages, as they are “short-lived” and therefore excluded from the collection process.

The EU Ombudsman (that is, the “ombudsman”), Emily O’Reilly, expressed herself on the matter, asking for clarity on the question of the messages, and in a letter she writes that it is “essential” that she should be contacted by investigators. The team meets with officials to hear the reasoning behind the ‘Commission’s policy on text message record keeping and how this policy is implemented’.

In 2019 von der Leyen was at the center of a case that had a lot of resonance in Germany: Ursula, who had been defense minister, was met with criticism because a mobile phone, which was used as vital evidence within a procurement scandal for the German defense was considered. , was “cleaned”.

Months ago, RAI broadcast report She tried to ask questions about vaccine contracts, but the commissioner did not stop to answer the reporter.

Now there are also issues with the specific case, already reported renovatio 21, about von der Leyen’s husband, Heiko von der Leyen, who works as medical director at Organasys, a biotechnology company specializing in gene therapy: a supply chain similar to the Pfizer vaccine, which is actually , is more than a vaccine, it is a parenteral treatment.

This will not be the first somewhat obscure contact between the CEO of Pfizer and important international figures. as reported by renovatio 21, the Pope reportedly met with Bourla twice in secret.

Similarly, Israeli newspapers spoke of a “secret agreement” Between the Tel Aviv government and the pharmaceutical giant. Under the agreement, Pfizer must share health data of Israeli citizens.

In fact, opaque contracts between different nations and Pfizer would be many more.

Pfizer has formalized 73 deals for its coronavirus vaccine. According to Transparency International, a defense group based in London, only five contracts have been formally published by governments and are accompanied by “significant censorship”.

writes an article in Washington Post That « Pfizer has formalized 73 agreements for its coronavirus vaccine. According to Transparency International, a defense group based in London, only five contracts have been formally published by governments and these are with “significant censorship”.

“What is known about Pfizer’s contracts has often been leaked through local or international journalism, including the Bureau of Investigative Journalism,” writes the US capital’s newspaper. “The contract with Brazil prohibits the government from making any public declaration as to the existence, object or conditions of[accordo]”or to comment on its relationship with Pfizer without the prior written consent of the Company.”

“Pfizer has also included clauses in contracts with Albania, Brazil and Colombia that can unilaterally modify delivery schedules in case of shortages”.

“In contracts with Brazil, Chile, Colombia, the Dominican Republic and Peru, governments were required to sign a document stating that each “explicitly and irrevocably waives any right of immunity that may in the future may possess or acquire his or his property. even the first four [Paesi] He was required to relinquish immunity against “precautionary” confiscation of his property »writes Vapo,

“Pfizer has also included clauses in its contracts with Albania, Brazil and Colombia that can unilaterally modify delivery schedules in case of shortages.”

But let’s go back to Brussels. In conclusion, we would like to briefly recall the circumstances of the election of von der Leyen, which ended – in fact – with an SMS.

It’s good not to forget that Ursula won the highest seat in the European Union thanks to a handful of Grillini votes. According to some revelations written on Senator Bagnai’s blog, Matteo Salvini would have maneuvered with extreme skill to prevent his election by convincing the Socialists that the League would vote for von der Leyen, to generate disapproval of the Pavlovians. Instead, it so happened that Eurogrillini voted for it, appointing it president of the European Union Commission.

According to various reconstructions, maneuvers It could have passed through Elisabeta Trenta, who met Ursula, a former defense minister, who was also a woman at the head of her country’s armed forces department. The two would have met at the NATO summit in Brussels.

According to Dagospia, von der Leyen also sent a thank you SMS to Trenta: “You did this, I will remember. Tnks“(“It’s your credit, I’ll remember, thanks”).

It is not known from where the news of this SMS between former Defense Ministers came nor is it true. However, it’s already very much in line with Pfizer’s boss messages.

The messages we imagine at this point in time were shorter than this type of thank you.
