Description

"In the first text 'Medicines for Million Dollars' we exposed a corruption proposal made to an American pharmaceutical concern. Then we followed with texts bringing to light suspicious developments involving closest associates of former Minister of Health Mariusz Lapinski -- notably Lapinski's political office chief Waldemar Deszczynski and Vice - minister of Health Aleksander Nauman who was responsible for medicines supply policy, including the registration and placing of medicines on refundable medicines lists. (Several weeks before our first release the prime minister appointed Nauman the chairman of the National Health Fund, an institution which is the sole administrator of the health insurance system's money.)"
