Denmark Orders Probe of Officials on AIDS

June 17, 1988|United Press International

COPENHAGEN — The Danish minister for health today ordered an investigation of leading national health officials who allegedly lied about the use of AIDS-infected blood in transfusions.

Health Minister Elsebeth Kock-Petersen said she had also asked the police to investigate a medical company which processed infected blood products. Her order came after a judge's report said that high-ranking health officials knowingly misled her predecessor by denying that unscreened donor blood had been used at hospitals.
