As always, the recent CCHR UK Awards Dinner at Saint Hill Manor (held on 16 Apr 2011) was moving and inspiring. My guests this year were my friend Baz and his great aunt, the well-known photographer, Hy Money.

Bob Fiddaman CCHR award winner happy in the company of KIDDIE ABUSE coverup SUSPECT Jan Eastgate


A couple of weeks ago I was invited to the CCHR Human Rights Award Banquet in East Grinstead [near Gatwick]. To be honest I had no idea I would receive my second award from the powerhouse that is CCHR.

source -

http://fiddaman.blogspot.com/2011/04/cchr-award-banquet-uk-april-2011.html

I travelled from Birmingham with a trio of *Brummie beauties, two of them volunteers for CCHR. Thank you Sarah, Vicky and Sadie, you made me feel most welcome.

Upon arriving at the lavish banquet I met up with two warriors I had met previously in Los Angeles earlier this year, President CCHR International, Jan Eastgate, and Executive Director CCHR United Kingdom, Margaret McNair.


I also met with Brian Daniels, the man with the voice of a radio talk show host. Brian and I had only previously spoken over the phone so it was great to finally meet up with him...at last, I thought, a bloody bloke!

It was only going through rehearsals that I realised that CCHR UK were going to give me an award, I was quite shocked yet very proud that the UK branch were acknowledging my advocacy work over the past 5 years.

Earlier in the year I invited a couple of special guests to share in this CCHR experience, namely Leonie and Tony, parents of Shane Clancy. One thing I love about the Irish [well, most of them] is their kindness and warmth. Both Tony and Leonie had this in abundance as did the other Irish folk I met that night. A one stage [after the event] I was sitting amongst 6 Irish people, I felt like I was at Cheltenham race course.

MC for the event was former Rolling Stones manager Tony Calder and there were three awards presented on the night, the first presented by Peter Bennett to Sharon Parnell, the second was presented by Hermann Keppler and Jan Eastgate to Dounne Alexander.

It was another night where CCHR brought people from all walks of life together, yet another moment of realisation that there are many advocates out there fighting their own corners, sticking it to 'da man'.

Myself, Leonie and Tony headed back to the hotel and stayed up into the wee hours drinking red wine, their company enraptured me. Two lovely people carrying such sadness in their hearts. We kind of clicked with one another, it must be the Irish in me [mother's side]

The day after saw me lunch with Margaret McNair and Jan Eastgate, Brian Daniels joined us later. It was another chance for me to get acquainted with the work these warriors do and the results they achieve. I cannot big them up enough, they are advocates on a mission, they acknowledge all that is bad about the pharmaceutical industry and psychiatry, they also acknowledge the good in people who fight against this psychopharmaceutical monopoly.

I love them to bits.

I'm hooking up with some CCHR people again pretty soon. This is the Birmingham branch, my hometown.

Over coffee we shall plan our art of war.

This is the beginning of my journey. If people wish to continue standing in my way then I will just walk around them with fingers in my ears. They have nothing to say that is of any interest to me, they are part of the problem and not the solution, for that they should be utterly ashamed of themselves.

CCHR ain't just rock...they are rock AND roll!

CCHR president Jan Eastgate arrested and charged in childs sex abuse coverup

A SENIOR figure of the Church of Scientology has been arrested and charged with over claims she coached an 11-year-old girl to lie about sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of her stepfather.

http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/breaking-news/senior-scientologist-jan-eastgate-arrested-charged-in-sydney/story-e6frf7jx-1226066186126



Jan Eastgate, who is the international president of the Citizen's Commission on Human Rights, has been charged in relation to allegations she coached Carmen Rainer into lying about the claims, the ABC reported.

The girl's stepfather was a member of the Church of Scientology.

Police allege Ms Eastgate threatened and intimidated her into providing false statements to police about the abuse.

The allegations were aired on Lateline last year and are backed up by Ms Rainer's mother who claims Ms Eastgate coached them both on what to say about the allegations.

Ms Eastgate has been granted conditional bail and has been asked to surrender her passport.

She is due to appear in Downing Centre Court on June 16.

A SENIOR member of the Church of Scientology has been charged by police for intimidating a young girl who wanted to report sexual abuse allegations within the church.


http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/nation/scientologist-charged-for-intimidating-alleged-sex-abuse-victim/story-e6frg6nf-1226066045613

Jan Eastgate, the head of the church's "International Commission on Human Rights" which attacks psychology, has been charged by NSW Police with perverting the course of justice.



According the ABC TV's Lateline, police have alleged Eastgate intimidated a then 11-year-old Carmen Rainer to provide false statements about sexual abuse by her stepfather.



Ms Rainer has alleged that Ms Eastgate, who was then head of the church's citizens' commission on human rights in Australia, told her she should deny any charges of the sexual abuse or she and her brother would be taken away by social services.



Ms Rainer's mother Phoebe has also admitted Ms Eastgate told both of them what to say and to lie to police and in an interview with the Department of Community Services. Ms Eastgate previously called the allegations "egregiously false".




She she has not commented since being charged.



Ms Eastgate has been asked by NSW police to surrender her passport.



Ms Rainer had previously said that she was told by senior Scientology members that abuse was punishment for being bad in a previous life.



"She said, 'Just say no, keep repeating that'," Ms Rainer told the ABC in an interview last year.



"They told me it was my fault because I'd been bad in a past life. I believed them."



Ms Eastgate was the recipient of the Church of Scientology's Freedom Medal for her work with human rights, primarily aimed at uncovering problems with psychology treatments.



The news comes after the Australian Securities & Investments Commission earlier this month launched an inquiry into the business dealings of a Sydney property developer and senior Scientologist over a series of property deals.



The inquiry by ASIC into Carly Crutchfield was launched after independent senator Nick Xenophon - a vocal opponent of Scientology - sent a dossier to the corporate watchdog last month.



Senator Xenophon is calling for a judicial inquiry into the church.



The South Australian senator is asking that the organisation be stripped of its official religious status as a church, which means among other things its earnings aren't taxed. Scientology is founded on the teachings of American science fiction novelist L. Ron Hubbard, who taught that human psychological problems are a result of an ancient alien leader called Xenu, who attacked the planet Earth and left behind traumatised spirits of the former Earth race.

One of the Church of Scientology's most senior figures, Jan Eastgate, has been arrested and charged in Sydney.



She has been charged with perverting the course of justice in relation to allegations she coached an 11-year-old girl to lie to police and community services about the sexual abuse she suffered from her stepfather who was a member of the Church of Scientology.



Eastgate is the international president of the Citizens' Commission on Human Rights, an organisation founded by the Church of Scientology that campaigns against psychiatry.



She was awarded the church's freedom medal for promoting human rights in 1988.



Police allege Eastgate threatened and intimidated Carmen Rainer when she was 11 into providing false statements to police about the sexual abuse she suffered from her stepfather.



Ms Rainer outlined these allegations for the first time on Lateline last year.



Eastgate declined to be interviewed at the time the allegations first aired on Lateline.



In an email to Lateline last year she described the allegations by Carmen and Phoebe Rainer as "egregiously false".



She did not respond to an email sent by Lateline on May 30, 2011.



Eastgate has been granted conditional bail and asked to surrender her passport.



She is due to appear in Downing Centre Court on June 16.

Antidepressant under 12 year old Australia - use mainly tricyclic for bedwetting

The data showed that children were prescribed antidepressants far less often than adults. Those aged under 12 years were rarely prescribed antidepressants. Most of those prescribed were tricyclics, which are more commonly used in management of enuresis than of depression




http://www.mja.com.au/public/issues/182_02_170105/letters_170105_fm-1.html

Antidepressant use in children: a less depressing story



Christopher M Harrison and Helena C Britt

MJA 2005; 182 (2): 92

To the Editor: A recent editorial in the British Medical Journal reported advice from the UK Committee on Safety of Medicines that most types of selective serotonin-reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) should not be used in the treatment of major depression in children.1 The editorial sparked interest in the Australian media, resulting in articles in large metropolitan newspapers with titles such as "Army of kids on antidepressants".2 General practitioners were targeted as the cause of reported "over-prescribing".



Unfortunately, while the media drew data from the national BEACH program (Bettering the Evaluation and Care of Health; a continuing study of general practice activity3), the data presented were inflated: a "child" was defined as someone aged under 20 years (while the UK advice related to children under 18 years), and national figures were extrapolated from the upper confidence limit.



Reliable estimates of GP prescribing of antidepressants to children in Australia are needed. We derived age-specific rates of antidepressants prescribed per encounter in Australian general practice for the period April 2001 to March 2004 from the BEACH data (Box 1).



The data showed that children were prescribed antidepressants far less often than adults. Those aged under 12 years were rarely prescribed antidepressants. Most of those prescribed were tricyclics, which are more commonly used in management of enuresis than of depression.



The media's inclusion of 18–19-year-olds as "children" greatly increased the reported rate.2 The prescribing rate of antidepressants in children aged under 18 years was 0.47 per 100 encounters (5 per 1000 encounters), but was six times higher for 18–19-year-olds (2.82 per 100 encounters).



Most antidepressants prescribed for 12–17-year-olds were SSRIs. Fluoxetine is the only SSRI currently approved for use in children in the UK.4 In Australia, caution is advised when prescribing any antidepressant to children, but venlafaxine and the SSRI paroxetine are specifically advised against.5 Nevertheless, venlafaxine and paroxetine were more often prescribed (accounting for 10% and 8%, respectively, of total antidepressants for children) than fluoxetine (5%). However, GPs provided concomitant counselling at almost 20% of contacts with children aged under 12 years where an antidepressant was prescribed, and at 40% with 12–18-year-olds (Box 2). GPs were also more likely to refer the children to a specialist than when prescribing antidepressants for adults.



We do not know how many of these children have been referred to a specialist at a previous encounter, nor how often antidepressant medication is initiated by a specialist. However, it will be interesting to see whether the new advice reduces the current level of prescribing of antidepressants (SSRIs in particular) in children.

Lord Milo Douglas - inquest - SANE comments - "demonstrate serial failures"

SANE comment following the inquest into the death of Lord Milo Douglas


Added: 3rd Mar 2011



Marjorie Wallace, Chief Executive of mental health charity SANE, said:



“SANE is disturbed by findings revealed at today’s inquest which we believe demonstrate serial failures in the care and treatment of Lord Milo Douglas.



“The evidence highlights the lack of choice mentally ill people have to be admitted to hospital and how they have nowhere to turn if they feel they can no longer live in the community without being a risk to themselves.



“Milo Douglas, who had suffered from manic depression for over ten years, expressed a clear wish to be admitted to hospital six days before carrying out the suicide he had previously described in detail to the professionals charged with his care. Instead he was sent a series of different, mainly junior, members of a Crisis Resolution Team (CRT) who did not respond to the seriousness of his state of mind.



“The purpose of these teams is to treat people at home, thereby preventing costly inpatient care.



The way community care is practised - relying on a series of teams which often do not get to know individual patients – has in our experience led to systemic confusion, delays in response to crisis and in some cases preventable loss of life.



“We believe that had Milo Douglas’ pleas for help been respected, this tragedy would not have happened.”

Lord Milo Douglas and ...very severe depression for last 12 tears - says father

Last night his 79-year-old father David, the 12th Marquess of Queensberry, told of his family's devastation.


'He had a problem with bi-polar disorder,' he said outside the family's London home.

'He decided he had enough. It's the worst thing that can happen to anyone, but I guess it has to happen to somebody every now and again.

'He would swing from highs to lows, and had a very severe depression. I suppose we have known about it ten or 12 years.


'He just hit a very black, low period. 'Basically he decided the problems of life exceeded its advantages, in a way. He was on medication, but I don't think he could have been absolutely right.'

Gay Lord Milo - manic depressive on Lithium last 10 years

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/journalists/mick-brown/8534058/Should-more-have-been-done-to-save-Lord-Milo-Douglas.html

Working doggedly, he gained a 2:1 in English, before returning to London to work for an online antiquarian book dealer. He embarked on a gay love affair with a young Italian. When the relationship fell apart, he was devastated. In 1999, when he was 24, he had his first bipolar manic episode.




'It manifested itself by classic behaviour,’ Lady Queensberry says. 'There were overwhelming religious aspects to his thoughts; he became hectoring about moral issues, bewitched by sequences of numbers; he saw other faces superimposed on those of people he knew. He would invite tramps back home and gave away his possessions and money to people sheltering under Waterloo Bridge.’



When his behaviour became unmanageable he was taken to hospital, where his condition was diagnosed. He was prescribed lithium – the standard mood-stabilising medication for the condition. For the next 10 years, Lord Milo would remain under the monitoring eye of psychiatrists, both private and NHS.

Lundbeck's Lexapro escitalopram Antidepressant may not cut hot flashes after all

(Reuters Health) - New research throws a wet blanket on an earlier study that showed women in menopause might get dramatic relief from hot flashes by taking the antidepressant Lexapro.


http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/05/26/us-hot-flashes-idUSTRE74P5DK20110526

According to the new findings, Forest Laboratories' Lexapro, also called escitalopram, reduces neither the severity nor frequency of hot flashes associated with menopause.



Robert Freedman, a behavioral scientist at Wayne State University in Detroit who led the work, says he was "disappointed" by the results.



"We wouldn't have done the study if we had not expected an effect" from the drug, Freedman told Reuters Health.



Roughly 75 percent of women in menopause experience hot flashes, and nearly half of them report severe episodes. Hormone replacement therapy has long been the standard treatment for the bothersome symptoms, but millions of women stopped using the drugs after it became clear that they increase the risk of cancer and heart disease.



Given this backdrop, the previous study suggesting that Lexapro might halve the number of hot flashes generated a lot of buzz.



The key difference between the two trials, which used the same doses of drug over the same time period, is how they measured hot flashes, Freedman said.



In the earlier study, women were asked to keep a diary of each episode, while Freedman and his colleagues had volunteers wear a battery-powered hot flash detector on their skin.



The quarter-sized device measures humidity to record hot flash activity even during sleep, he said. It also can detect hot flashes when women aren't aware they are experiencing them -- making it much more reliable than personal accounts, said Freedman, who holds a patent on the technology.



The Michigan researchers conducted two trials with escitalopram, both lasting eight weeks. In the first, they gave 10 milligrams a day of the drug or dummy pills to 10 women in menopause.



When the researchers found no effect of escitalopram on the number of hot flashes women had, they repeated the trial in 26 more women and upped the dose to 20 milligrams per day. Again, the frequency of hot flashes did not seem to change, hovering at about 19 to 20 per week.



During the final week of the trial, women taking escitalopram had an average of about 17 hot flashes a day, down 14 percent from the first week. Those taking dummy pills experienced a seven-percent increase in hot flashes from the start of the study, but Freedman said the difference between the two groups wasn't "clinically significant."



Freedman's group reported its findings in the journal Menopause.



Ellen W. Freeman, a menopause expert at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, and a co-author of the earlier Lexapro study, acknowledged that hot flash activity differs considerably when recorded by a monitor and reported by women themselves. But that, she said, may not be the most important issue for patients or their doctors.



"Clinicians treat the woman's complaint of hot flashes, and the degree to which they are bothersome or distressing," Freeman told Reuters Health. "An objective monitor has scientific appeal but may not relate to the clinical problem."

Shane Clancy destabilised long before taking Cipramil - murder/suicide Ireland






It is significant that his behaviour changed dramatically in May 2009 following the break-up of his relationship with his girlfriend Jennifer Hannigan, with the evidence to the jury suggesting a man whose behaviour became ever more bizarre.


This would tend to suggest his mental state was destabilising significantly even before he was prescribed the antidepressant.

ANALYSIS: Antidepressant drugs cannot be blamed with certainty for the behaviour which led a student to stab one man to death and injure two other people before killing himself, writes MUIRIS HOUSTON



THE TRAGIC deaths of two young men in a stabbing episode in a house in Bray in the early hours of August 16th last year were relived at an inquest in Wicklow town this week.



Trinity College Dublin student Shane Clancy (22) stabbed Sebastian Creane to death and wounded two other people before stabbing himself 19 times and dying from a a stab wound to the heart.



The others attacked on the night were Sebastian Creane's brother Dylan, and Jennifer Hannigan, Sebastian Creane's girlfriend. She had previously gone out with Clancy, and the inquest heard that he was jealous of the relationship between her and Sebastian Creane.



The jury at the inquest into Clancy's death returned an open verdict after hearing evidence about the possible effects on his behaviour of antidepressants he was taking at the time.



Leonie Fennell, Shane Clancy's mother, told East Wicklow Coroner's Court she believed his death was linked to the antidepressants.



The court heard her son had complained of being "severely depressed" when he saw a doctor in Bray about three weeks before he died.



He was prescribed the anti- depressant drug, cipramil, on July 27th. Four days later, he complained of agitation.



On August 5th, he took an overdose of the drug in an attempt to take his own life. Two days later, a locum doctor prescribed the same drug, but in a lower dose.



Fennell told the jury she wanted to get the message out that drugs such as cipramil, which is marketed under the trade name Citalopram, were the reason for her son's behaviour.



An important question arising out of the inquest is whether there is scientific evidence to back up her assertion, or whether there may have been other factors which contributed to the harrowing events.



Cipramil is a class of drug known as selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRI). There is nothing in the medical literature to suggest a link between cipramil and homicide. In fact, there is some evidence that SSRIs may reduce impulsive, aggressive behaviour.



But there is epidemiological evidence that the risk of self-harm in depressed patients is greatest around the time of presentation to medical services. And it does seem that the risk of suicide may increase in the early stages of treatment for depressive illness.



These findings led to a number of regulatory agencies, including the US Federal Drugs Administration and the European Medicines Agency, to formally examine the thesis that a specific group of antidepressants – the SSRIs – were the cause of suicidal tendencies, especially in young adults recently prescribed these drugs. They found no evidence of cause and effect, but recommended that young adults treated with SSRIs should be closely monitored.



In the UK, after the prescription of antidepressants for people who are considered to be at increased risk of suicide or are younger than 30, guidelines from the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) suggested doctors see the patient again after one week, and then frequently, until the risk of suicide is no longer clinically important.



NICE believes that the appropriate treatment for moderate to severe depression is a combination of antidepressant medication and high intensity psychological intervention such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).



It states in its October 2009 guideline: "If the person presents immediate risk to themselves or others, refer them urgently to specialist mental health services . . . if the person is assessed to be at risk of suicide, consider providing increased support, such as more frequent contact."



However, Dr David Healy, a long-time campaigner on the issue of antidepressant safety, told this week's inquest that some people could take their own lives or be violent when taking SSRIs.



Healy, an Irish-born psychiatrist who is a professor at Cardiff University, is regularly called on to give evidence in legal cases involving antidepressants. He contributed to a controversial investigation into the safety of paroxetine (Prozac) carried out by the BBC Panorama programme in 2002, and is the author of Let Them Eat Prozac .



In a co-authored 2006 paper on antidepressants and violence published in the open access journal PLoS Medicine , Healy and his colleagues concluded: "In practice, clinicians need to be aware of the issues, but serious violence on antidepressants is likely to be very rare.



When violence is a suspected outcome, every case has to be considered carefully, on the principle that individuals are responsible for their conduct, unless there is clear evidence of compromised function that cannot be otherwise explained."



So can Shane Clancy's conduct be otherwise explained? It is impossible to draw any final conclusion without having detailed information on his previous medical history: had he been assessed by a psychiatrist as a child or adolescent; and had he been diagnosed with previous depression or other psychological illness?



It is significant that his behaviour changed dramatically in May 2009 following the break-up of his relationship with his girlfriend Jennifer Hannigan, with the evidence to the jury suggesting a man whose behaviour became ever more bizarre.






This would tend to suggest his mental state was destabilising significantly even before he was prescribed the antidepressant.




Citalopram and other SSRIs have been used to successfully treat a large number of people with depression.



It would be wrong to condemn these and other antidepressants on the back of one deeply tragic case. But what could be usefully examined is the systematic assessment of depression by healthcare professionals in primary care.



The issue of monitoring patients in the early stages of treatment with antidepressants, especially younger people, also needs to be looked at.



Greater practical support and more frequent reassessment of patients with moderate to severe depression could help ease the burden of the illness, as well as offering a modicum of reassurance to those affected by tragedy.

Shane tried suicide weeks before knife rampage – parents

http://www.herald.ie/national-news/shane-tried-suicide-weeks-before-knife-rampage-ndash-parents-1903674.html


Saturday October 03 2009

THE parents of the young man who killed Sebastian Creane before taking his own life have revealed he attempted suicide a few weeks before he was embroiled in the tragic murder- suicide.


Shane Clancy’s mother, Leonie Fennell, told RTE’s Late Late Show how she took her son to the doctor where he got a month’s supply of antidepressants – but he took them all in one go.



She criticised the fact that after the suicide attempt he had been given another month's supply and his parents had not been made aware of the sideeffects.


Leonie, along with Shane’s stepfather Tony Donnelly, also told how her 22-year-old Trinity College student son had curled up into a ball and stabbed himself 19 times after he stabbed Sebastian in the early hours of August 16.

He had also inflicted multiple stab wounds on Sebastian’s brother, Dylan (27), and stabbed his former girlfriend, Jennifer Hannigan (22).


BREAK-UP

The violent rampage unfolded at the Creane family home at Cuala Grove in Bray last month. Sebastian had recently begun a relationship with Jennifer, with whom Clancy had broken up with three months earlier.

“He just couldn’t get over the break-up with his girlfriend,” said Leonie. “He ended the relationship and just obviously regretted the decision,” echoed his stepfather Tony.

Describing her son as an extremely caring boy with a big heart, Ms Fennell insisted there was never any malice in him. “He said one day, out of the blue, ‘I can't get over it’.


“He got worse and worse. He would be standing beside me and the tears would be running down his face,” said Leonie. Tony Donnelly told host Ryan Tubridy that Shane lost two stone and became a shadow of his former self.

“He was sad constantly, all of the time.

“His motivation was failing and he found it difficult to be his normal self.

“He was heartbroken.”

Antidepressants should be prescribed says CIPRAMIL mum Leonie Fennell


Fennell is not opposed to the prescription of anti-depressants. But she believes that her son is in a minority of people who react badly to them. The pills made him feel anxious, on edge and more depressed as he struggled to get over breaking up with his ex-girlfriend, Jennifer Hannigan, whom he also stabbed, along with Creane's older brother Dylan, that fateful night last summer.



"I'm not saying they don't work for other people. Of course they do, and of course they should be prescribed and people should not stop taking them because of what happened to Shane. He had a reaction to the tablets. His tongue got swollen from taking them. Then he overdosed on them and the second doctor prescribed him the same thing. If he'd been given a different type of anti-depressant the second time, he might have been OK."

Post-traumatic stress disorder


At present there is no conclusive evidence that any drug treatment helps as an early intervention for the treatment of PTSD-specific symptoms (NCCMH, 2005). However, for people who are acutely distressed, and may in particular be experiencing significant sleep problems, consideration may be given to the use of medication. Drug treatments for PTSD should not be used as a routine first-line treatment for adults (in general use or by specialist mental health professionals) in preference to a trauma-focused psychological therapy. Drug treatments should be considered for the treatment of PTSD in adults when a sufferer expresses a preference not to engage in a trauma-focused psychological treatment. The SSRI paroxetine is the only drug with a current UK product licence for PTSD.

CCHR Fiddaman lies exposed - Seroxat declined massively years before Gatchel suicide

Fiddleman said -


"It's laughable and highlights how pathetic our medicines regulatory body are. They are, for want of a better word, powerless. To call themselves a 'regulatory agency' is perverse. Kudos has to be given to them for warning doctors but they should have warned them years before the deaths of these two young women. To plead ignorance about the dangers of these drugs is an insult to the memories of Sharise and Sheryl.



http://fiddaman.blogspot.com/2011/05/in-memory-of-sharise-and-sheryl.html

The cycle will continue because many doctors have blinkered views when it comes to prescribing drugs like this. Seroxat prescriptions have declined, the death of Sharise has played a major part in that decline, her death highlighted on BBC TV's Panorama. Those who have had the balls to stand up and be counted and speak out against Seroxat should also take a bow.

However, shortly before her death she was given a new prescription without the knowledge of her parents.


Mr and Mrs Gatchell went away on Friday, May 23, believing Sharise's best friend was staying for the weekend.

Her parents returned early on Monday, May 26, to find their daughter's body.

The empty pack of pills, dated May 7, a blood-stained craft knife and a note were on her bed.

Mrs Gatchell told the inquest: "I had no idea she was on Seroxat but she was definitely behaving very strangely. Had we known she was taking it we would never have gone away.

"She was aggressive, hostile and very depressed.

CIPRAMIL - work for the majority of people. ' Of course they do, and of course they should be prescribed

Leonie admitted that the drugs work for the majority of people. ' Of course they do, and of course they should be prescribed and people should not stop taking them ...!!




'I'll fight for my Shane'

http://www.braypeople.ie/news/ill-fight-for-my-shane-2150163.html


' I'LL FIGHT FOR MY SHANE.' Leonie Fennell is ready to face a battle with the makers of a drug who deny it caused her son's death.


She however, said that anti-depressants are 'handed out like Smarties in this country,

'Does someone need to be the sacrificial lamb to get the message out there about the dangers of anti-depressants?'

Clancy had no alcohol and 'toxic-to-fatal' levels of antidepressants in his body before killing a man, stabbing two others and taking his own life in Bray last August.

His mother believes that Shane was in a minority of people who react badly to such medication. He felt anxious, on edge and more depressed after taking the pills.

Red Cross woman Leonie said that she will 'fight all the way,' following a statement from the makers of drugs that it did not cause his death.

She is now launching a campaign for more awareness of the dangers of anti-depressants after an inquest heard that cipramil ( citalopram) medication was known to cause 'suicidal and homicidal thoughts,' among 'a minority of people.'

However Lundbeck, producers of the drug, said that ' extensive scientific studies have shown that there is no evidence linking citalopram to violent behavior.'

Leonie admitted that the drugs work for the majority of people. ' Of course they do, and of course they should be prescribed and people should not stop taking them because of what happened to Shane,' she said. 'He had a reaction to the tablets. His tongue got swollen from taking them. Then he overdosed on them and the second doctor prescribed him the same thing.'

She believes that he might have been ok if the second doctor had prescribed a different drug and has emailed every TD in the Dáil asking for a public awareness campaign to be launched. Former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern is the only person to have responded personally to date.

'It's not going to bring Shane or Sebastian back,' she said of her crusade. 'But it might help some other mother's sons. I'll do whatever it takes.'

22p Compensation for dead miner's family..but lawyers pocket £1885

22p Compensation for dead miner's family..but lawyers pocket £1885


May 24 2011 Richard Smith









A family were given just 22p for the death of a coal miner - but their solicitors were paid £1885.

Relatives got the compensation under a Government scheme for former pitmen struck down by lung disease.

The unnamed family's award is the lowest payout made to 750,000 miners who suffered years of agony over the effects of breathing in coal dust.

The family of the unnamed miner live in Rhondda, south Wales.

Their Welsh assembly member Leanne Wood said yesterday: "It's insulting to award compensation of 22p to the family of a miner with chest disease.

"It wouldn't even pay for a chocolate bar.

"The case is made worse by the amount charged by the solicitors' firm for their work on this claim."

Miners campaigner Dafydd Trystan Davies said: "I am of the view that the proportion of money paid to solicitors was far too high in relation to the money received by ailing miners or their families.

"The National Audit Office found that 69 per cent of all claimants paid compensation got less than the average cost of administering the claims.

Kick

"It is a real kick in the teeth to all those miners who toiled underground in squalid conditions, risking their health and often ending up with a blighted retirement through chest disease."

The handout was decided by experts vetting the claims. Legal fees are paid regardless of the compensation.

A Department of Energy and Climate Change spokesman said: "The family were offered 22p because the miner had an extensive history of smoking and very little relevant employment after the qualifying period."

More than £1billion has been paid out since the scheme was launched by the Labour government.

Stalker-killer Shane Clancy was reported to gardai on a number of occasions - so much for CIPRAMIL citalopram

http://www.independent.ie/national-news/stalker-reported-to-gardai-days-before-murder-1867300.html


By JIM CUSACK


Sunday August 23 2009

The stalker-killer Shane Clancy was reported to gardai on a number of occasions, the latest only two days before the murderous attack on his ex-girlfriend which led to the death of Sebastian Creane and the stabbing of Jennifer Hannigan and Sebastian's brother Dylan, according to friends of the Creane family.

It also emerged yesterday that Clancy, who stabbed himself to death in the back garden of the Creane home in Bray, Co Wicklow, had followed Jennifer to Thailand when she went backpacking to escape his stalking during the summer.

Jennifer Hannigan was released from hospital last Friday and is recovering from her injuries at home. Dylan Creane, Sebastian's brother who was stabbed repeatedly, is still recovering in hospital.

It had been reported last week that Clancy had called off a charity fundraising trip to India in June "citing personal reasons" but it now appears he did so to pursue his ex-girlfriend who broke up with him six months ago. Clancy is also understood to have gone to Australia believing she may have gone there.

Unnamed garda sources were quoted in one newspaper yesterday as saying there were no complaints about Clancy's stalking prior to last weekend. The Creane family declined to comment yesterday. It is understood all parties related to the incident have been advised by gardai not to speak to journalists.

Jennifer began going out with Sebastian Creane shortly before the end of term at the Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology, and it is believed that when Clancy found this out he embarked on the course of stalking that led to the horrific attack in the early hours of last Sunday.

Clancy came across Sebastian Creane on Saturday evening, whether by accident or design, at the Eagle House pub in Glasthule and followed him through the evening to a Dalkey club and then gave him a lift back to his home in Bray. Clancy then waited outside until he saw Jennifer

arrive at the house. He then drove to the all-night opening Dunnes Stores in Cornelscourt where he bought a block of kitchen knives then returned to the Creane home. Clancy first stabbed Sebastian and was attacking Jennifer when Dylan Creane, who was upstairs with his partner, Laura Mackey, came down and tried to stop him. Jennifer escaped through the back of the house and climbed over fences to a house further down the street to raise the alarm. She had a knife embedded in her shoulder. Musician Laura Mackey was unhurt.



Clancy went out to the back garden and unable to find Jennifer he stabbed himself first in the stomach then through the chest cavity into his heart. Remarkably, his body was not found until almost noon the next day.



A friend of the Hannigans said yesterday that the family had been frightened that Clancy could commit an act of violence and reported his stalking

to gardai on at least two occasions. "He just kept stalking her. She was in Thailand and he went over to see if he could find her over there. He started ringing her parents asking them to tell him where she was. The man was going crazy.



"They went to the gardai apparently two days before it happened just to report. I think he was always ringing her and ringing the family the whole time."



Stalking is an offence under the 1997 Non-fatal Offences Against the Person Act which gives gardai the power to order a stalker not to communicate with the victim or approach the victim's residence or place of employment. There have been a small number of convictions in recent years.



Clancy was a Trinity College student who should have been entering his fourth year studying Irish and Theology. He was described by acquaintances as a very hard-working young man who kept up two part-time jobs to pay for his fees and to keep an apartment in Dalkey and his car. He and Jennifer both worked in the Club Bar in Dalkey and dated for three years, the relationship ending earlier this year.



Acquaintances of Clancy said there were concerns that he had become unbalanced and had talked about suicide. One said: "I heard he said if he couldn't have her he would not be around and nobody else would have her."



The Clancy family are well known and respected in the Sallynoggin, Co Dublin, where they lived and in Dalkey where Clancy's grandparents and other relatives live.

Family deny Shane followed ex on Thailand trip

http://www.herald.ie/national-news/city-news/family-deny-shane-followed-ex-on-thailand-trip-1868625.html

Tuesday August 25 2009

Relatives of killer Shane Clancy have insisted that the disturbed young man took a recent trip to Thailand to relax, and have hit out at suggestions that he was following his former girlfriend Jennifer Hannigan.

Shane, who broke up with his girlfriend Ms Hannigan (22) six months ago, planned an extended trip to Australia to rest and broke the journey with a stop off in Thailand.

Shane's cousin Chris Clancy, who lives in Thailand with his wife, told the Herald that this was to be a time for Shane to get his thoughts together and relax in the idyllic setting of the Asian country.

"I live in Thailand and I was contacted by Shane before he arrived," Chris said. "He said he would be stopping off here before he travelled on to Australia, Fiji and America.

"He said he needed a break away from Ireland for a bit and he just wanted to relax on a remote beach," he explained. "He did not follow that girl [Jennifer Hannigan] to Thailand at all," insisted Mr Clancy.

Mr Clancy added that Shane seemed to be improving during the holiday and his relieved family believed his depression was lifting.

"Shane had a great time with myself and my Thai wife in Bangkok. He was a bit depressed but seemed to be getting happier as time went by," Chris said.

"I sent him to my friend's beach resort, which is two hours south of Bangkok, and he had a good time there also," he revealed. "My friend said he just relaxed on the beach and was reading a book about the new American president."

The image is in stark contrast to the disturbed young man who unleashed a savage attack on his ex-girlfriend Jennifer, her boyfriend Seb Creane and Seb's brother Dylan on August 16.

Earlier this summer, Shane called off a charity fundraising trip to India citing personal reasons.

Gardai are investigating whether Shane Clancy, who murdered Seb Creane (22) before killing himself, may have misused anti-depressants that had been prescribed for him just a week before the tragic night.

Earlier this week Shane's father, Patrick Clancy, spoke of the devastation and confusion he felt when gardai turned up on his doorstep to say that he had been involved in a stabbing incident.

"I still don't believe my son was in his right mind. Shane could have never lived with what he had done," Mr Clancy said. "Shane was a pacifist and I don't think he knew what rage or anger was and when it hit him, it was too late. A few seconds and everything was gone."

John Le Carré. / Constant Gardener / Pfizer ......but is Leonie Fennell blog accurate or self serving

check out Leonie here as Fiddaman's guest at Scientology awards - http://fiddaman.blogspot.com/2011/04/cchr-award-banquet-uk-april-2011.html

It was only going through rehearsals that I realised that CCHR UK were going to give me an award, I was quite shocked yet very proud that the UK branch were acknowledging my advocacy work over the past 5 years.



Earlier in the year I invited a couple of special guests to share in this CCHR experience, namely Leonie and Tony, parents of Shane Clancy. One thing I love about the Irish [well, most of them] is their kindness and warmth. Both Tony and Leonie had this in abundance as did the other Irish folk I met that night. A one stage [after the event] I was sitting amongst 6 Irish people, I felt like I was at Cheltenham race course.

LeCarre’s “The Constant Gardener” Was Based on Pfizer Trovan Case - was it true?

The Connecticut Law Tribune claims that The Constant Gardener, a John Le Carré book and later a movie with the same name, is in fact based on the Pfizer Trovan case. But is the claim true? A look at the timeline of both the case and the book suggest it is possible … as long as Le Carré is a very fast writer.

http://www.bnet.com/blog/drug-business/claim-lecarre-8217s-8220the-constant-gardener-8221-was-based-on-pfizer-trovan-case/653




While many have drawn parallels between the two — the movie and the lawsuit both posit an unscrupulous drug company doing fatal drug testing on African children and then trying to cover it up — this is the first report to BNET’s knowledge that directly asserts that The Constant Gardner is essentially a rewrite of Pfizer’s ill-fated meningitis drug tests in Nigeria. The story provides no sourcing for its claim, just a bald assertion. The Conn. Law Trib.:



West Haven, Conn., attorney Richard Altschuler has reams of paper and endless boxes of notes that tell the story. Medical experiments on children. Claims that a large American pharmaceutical company exploited a third world country.



Sounds like the plot of a novel? It was. The book is called “The Constant Gardener.” A movie of the same name followed in 2005.



But the thing is, both were based on reality, on a case that Altschuler has been fighting for eight years against Pfizer Inc.



Altschuler won an important ruling in February allowing 88 Nigerian families to pursue their claims against Pfizer in US courts. (Back story: In 1996, during a meningitis outbreak in Nigeria, Pfizer tested a drug, Trovan, on children there. About 11 kids died. The Washington Post: “Trovan was never approved for use by American children. The Food and Drug Administration approved it for adults in 1998 but later severely restricted its use after reports of liver failure. The European Union banned the drug in 1999.”)



While the Constant Gardener has often been discussed in the same breath as Trovan, Le Carré has previously denied that his book and the case draw from the same source. Big Pharma’s enfant terrible, Marcia Angell, reviewed the tome in the NY Review of Books and said this:



… in the real world, we don’t hear of pharmaceutical whistle-blowers being murdered, and there have been several whistle-blowers recently.



But le Carré himself cautions us against drawing any such conclusions. In an author’s note at the end of the book he makes a grudging disclaimer to the effect that no person or organization in the book is based on an actual person or organization. He also makes it clear, however, that he is obliged to say this “in these dog days when lawyers rule the universe.” He adds, “But I can tell you this. As my journey through the pharmaceutical jungle progressed, I came to realize that, by comparison with reality, my story was as tame as a holiday postcard.”

During the making of the movie, a copy of a documentary, “Dying for Drugs,” that was made for the UK’s Channel 4 in 2003, was given to the Constant Gardener cast. The documentary was about the Trovan case:

Director [of "Dying for Drugs"] Brian Woods met John Le Carré and Fernando Mereilles during production of “The Constant Gardener” in 2005, and copies of the film were distributed to members of the cast.

This all suggests that Le Carré’s book, the movie, and the Trovan case were on parallel tracks for some time. However, Le Carré ’s book was published in 2001, two years before the Channel 4 documentary. The obvious question here is, did Le Carré read about the case between 1996 and the time he finished writing?

He could have, but the timeline is a tight squeeze. Trovan’s Nigerian trials first made headlines in the Western press in 2000, when the Washington Post published a December investigation of the Nigerian trials. Here’s the text of a Pfizer press release from the time, which, unfortunately, is the only evidence I could gather that isn’t behind a pay wall. In both Lexis-Nexis and Factiva, the WaPo story on Trovan is the first mention in the media of a controversy in Nigeria.

In order for Le Carré to have based his book on the Trovan case, he would either have had to have inside knowledge of what was going on in Nigeria at the time (not implausible for a man of Le Carre’s social standing and background as an MI5 employee), or he would have had to read the Washington Post article and then bash out his novel very quickly. Or both

Romantic rivalry linked to Shane Clancy Bray tragedy - nothing to do with Cipramil / Celexa - Lundbeck

Romantic rivalry linked to Bray tragedy

http://www.breakingnews.ie/ireland/romantic-rivalry-linked-to-bray-tragedy-422931.html



A horrific murder/suicide that left two people dead and two others seriously injured may have been sparked by jealousy over a woman, it emerged tonight.

Sebastian Creane was knifed to death at his Co Wicklow house by friend Shane Clancy in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Detectives are probing the theory that Mr Creane was attacked because he was romantically involved with Mr Clancy’s ex-girlfriend Jennifer Hannigan.

Mr Clancy also stabbed Ms Hannigan and Mr Creane’s brother during the frenzied attack before turning the knife on himself in the garden of the house in Bray.

Detectives have yet to question the survivors, both of whom are being treated in hospital.

But it is understood Mr Clancy had been repeatedly contacting Ms Hannigan since they split.

Mr Creane, a student at Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology, was a former pupil at the fee-paying St Gerard’s school in Bray which paid a glowing tribute.

In a statement headmaster Tom Geraghty offered his sympathies to the family.

“At this time we at St Gerard’s School and the whole school community both past and present wish to commiserate with the family and friends of Sebastian Creane on their tragic and untimely loss,” the statement read.

“The staff of the school remember Sebastian as a hardworking, conscientious and diligent pupil who was consistently popular with both pupils and teachers of the class of 2005.

“Sebastian was always a perfect gentleman who cheerfully and willingly gave of his best in all school activities.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Sebastian at this time.”

The two men, both aged 22, had been on a night out in Dublin and returned to the house in Cuala Grove, a quiet middle class area, where the row broke out at around 5am.

It is believed Mr Clancy grabbed a kitchen knife and attacked Mr Creane, stabbing him several times, before turning it on Ms Hannigan.

Mr Creane’s 28-year-old brother Dylan, who was in the house heard the disturbance and was also stabbed when he intervened.

The alarm was raised after a seriously injured Ms Hannigan managed to crawl into the neighbour’s garden.

When gardaí arrived they initially believed the attacker fled on foot and after two hours searching the area officers discovered Mr Clancy’s bloodied body in the back garden.

Drugs were not a factor and detectives are not looking for anyone else in connection with the stabbings.

The Creanes’ parents were away on holiday when the tragedy occurred but returned to Ireland yesterday.

Mr Creane was a fourth-year visual communications student, while Mr Clancy was in the final year of a four-year degree in Trinity College and lived in Dalkey with his brother.

It is believed the pair worked together in The Club, a popular bar in Dalkey, south Co Dublin. When contacted management declined to comment.

Independent Bray TD Joe Behan said the town was shocked by the deaths.

“This is an immense tragedy for a number of families,” he said.

“Obviously the hearts of everybody in the community go out to all concerned.

“I’m sure the people who live in the immediate vicinity must be in a state of shock.”

The stabbing is the third knife attack in around a week, following the assault on Garda Daryl Mullen in Westport and the killing of Frankie Heneghan in Kiltimagh, Co Mayo.

Mr Heneghan, 24, from Ballyheane, near Castlebar, was found in a narrow alleyway in the small town in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Gardaí believe several people were involved in the savage killing.

Garda Mullen was hospitalised after being attacked while on the beat in the seaside town of Westport the previous weekend.

A 16-year-old youth has been charged over the attack.

The assaults provoked Fine Gael to call for public meetings to be held to raise awareness among young men about the dangers of knife crime.

“Public meetings aimed at parents and teachers are important and necessary for communities who are particularly affected by knife crime,” justice spokesman Charlie Flanagan said.

“The gardaí alone cannot get the message across to young men carrying knives.

“We know that one-third of knife crime offenders are young men under 20 and those who have daily contact with this peer group must be aware of what to look out for and how to respond. In this context, parents and teachers are a key audience.”


But gardaí hit back claiming it was running a public information campaign targeted at youths through social networking websites like Bebo and Twitter.

A spokesman said it believes more than 5,000 young people could be made aware of the dangers of knife crime through the campaign.
