Pfizer Admits Finance Scandal Investigation in India
As for the content of this letter, personally I'm ROFL.
Only a lawyer could have written such a letter to Mr. Idnani, the poor whistleblower in India:
"We would like to inform you that our investigation has been concluded. Based upon the information provided, an investigation was opened, the appropriate parties were contacted, and the matter was reviewed and handled accordingly."
I consulted an expert in corporate legalese and this is his translation:
"WE'RE WETTING OUR PANTS BECAUSE WE'RE SO SCARED YOU FOUND OUT ABOUT OUR DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS IN INDIA. WHEN WE HAVE FINALIZED OUR INTERNAL COVER-UP WE'LL FIRE YOUR SORRY ASS TO ERADICATE ANY CORPORATE MEMORY OF THIS EVENT."
Six months after this memo was sent, in August 2006, the whistleblower, Pfizer Deputy Finance Manager Mr. Ashok Idnani, was fired. Pfizer refused to even pay him vaction pay owed until 2007, and also refused to give him his 25 year anniversary faithful service medal until Pfizer's treatment of Mr. Idnani was revealed on Question Authority.
