China: FDA boss 1: Death! FDA boss 2: Death!
Cao Wenzhuang, who'd been the department director at the Chinese FDA from 2002 to 2006, was given the death penalty by the People's Intermediate Court on Friday, reported the state news agency XinHua.
Cao's predecessor Zheng Xiaoyu was sentenced to death in May for taking bribes to approve substandard medicines, including an antibiotic blamed for at least 10 deaths.
Watch China's national anthem, with appropriate images:
Uh-uh. I guess my blog will now be banned in China.
But quite frankly, when do we start sentencing white collar FDA and Big Pharma criminals, who may cause thousands of death, to their own deaths?
China is clearly ahead of us in some respects . . .
