Unfortunately I had to use google translate in order to understand this article as it is in Dutch. If any of my readers can do a translation that would be great… (e mail me on email@example.com).
Bob Fiddaman has been doing some great work in regards to this case of (what seems to be) a Seroxat induced suicide by the driver of the Sierre Bus which crashed killing scores of people. (see here). I really hope that they release an English version of this book which implicates Seroxat in this tragic crash.
Seroxat has been linked to many suicides, personality changes, serious side effects, aggressive acts and even murders, I can understand why because I was prescribed it and it’s absolutely lethal. I am off it a good few years, but you never really fully recover from a severe Seroxat reaction. The problem is though, despite all these risks, GSK still make a profit on it and it’s still sold to unsuspecting consumers. Isn’t it high time that GSK told the public the truth about this dangerous drug, and pulled it from the pharmacy shelves? And perhaps also GSK should offer help to all those long term addicts who can’t come off it because of its crippling withdrawal effects?
I believe it is time that GSK came clean about Seroxat..
The busramp in Sierre, Switzerland on March 13, 2012, in which 28 people were killed – including 22 schoolchildren from Lommel and Heverlee – was no accident. It was the result of a deliberate act of driver Geert Michiels who used the antidepressant Paxil and committed an act of desperation. That’s the thesis of Douglas De Coninck, investigative journalist with the newspaper De Morgen. De Coninck presented his book “The busramp in Sierre: 1 pill, 28 dead” (published by Manteau) this afternoon for the KVS in Brussels. Evy Laermans, the widow of Michiels, the book calls “yet another slap in the face.”
The book by Douglas De Coninck reconstructs the ramprit including on the basis of the latest text messages from the driver, the statements of the children on the bus and data from the tachograph. With that drive researchers were able to determine the speed at which the bus crashed into the wall in the tunnel of the Swiss motorway.
A study also points to the dangerous side effects of the antidepressant driver Geert Michiels swallowed and which he was using to reduce.
“It is especially when you put all the elements in a row, it becomes clear that something other than chance is in play,” said De Coninck. He finds the book a dozen similarities with the desperate act of co-pilot Andreas Lubitz who showed crash a flight Germanwings deliberately in March 2015 in the south of France.
At the press conference on the release of the book were also some relatives of perished children the word Olga Leclercq, Mom Eline, Irla Daris, sister of Roma and Paul Painters, dad Luc. They found the publication of this book was a relief, because they never received satisfactory answers to their questions from the Swiss court and this book does give those answers.
