4:43 pm
news news that. jason evans founded the independent campaign group factor 8 its members of the immediate relatives of him affiliates who died because of contaminated blood products his organization provides them with legal help. i really only had one goal when i got involved in campaigning on this subject i wanted it to tell on the official record what happened could and should have been avoided i think after that point maybe there's room for that as support for people counseling and compensation and all these other things but i think for me. once it's on the record that there is liability and then all.
4:44 pm
right. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race. spearing dramatic development the only relief i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk. seemed wrong why don't we all just don't call. me. yet to shape out these days to come as a kid and in detroit equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
4:45 pm

health center on the campus students could receive the medical care they needed and attend classes all in the same place. it's also the signs of the greatest concentration of contaminated blood cases that the u.k. has ever seen. busy what it. is that you receive significant quantities of fats the rates of prophylactic base. there are crazy about who's to us aren't to we have target joints and that was my left mate in the right. for our current system why they would give me consecutive doses day after day. great britain will be self-sufficient in blood products and will guarantee their purity. was the government's promise in the 1970s. when government came in that pledge in the name went away and they found
4:47 pm

4:48 pm
cardiff were keen to test facts or a concentrates free infectivity on their patients to all hemophilia since directors . initial production bunches may have been tested for infectivity by injecting them into chimpanzees it is unlikely that the manufacturers will be able to guarantee this form of quality control for all future batches it is therefore very important find out by studies in human beings to what extent the infectivity of the various concentrates has been reduced. the reason they used humans instead of chimpanzees was one because chimpanzees were expensive and essentially patients were free when they don't know that experiment we tried to speak to the pharmaceutical companies that produced factor 8 at the time over the last 50 years they have changed names and ownership several times and none wanted to talk about the contaminated blood issue now. what we know now is that the trolls are also
4:49 pm
conducting tests regularly and keeping records of liver function tests which made you think ok so what are they actually looking for figuring in a safe product to be one to monitoring how you live. or if you change their rules or you cd for care why would they be looking for a spring. out of the 80. 90 of affiliates who went to train those college 72 died. and people are still dying. from liver related problems to have a charge say. i actually feel guilty i'm still here i asked myself the question why am i still alive. you know 70 percent of the hang feel that boy use
4:50 pm
the rats college. i've had and i don't care and i'm always question yourself why me i why am i saying i live by being allowed to live when so many have and. the official claim was that the new medicines were safe the most emphatic statement to that effect was from kenneth clark health secretary under margaret thatcher's government. i think someone that really has a lot to answer for as a minister is. the well known kenneth clark actually stood up for an argument and said there is no conclusive proof. is transmitted through blood products he really needs to answer for putting out that type of misinformation and this was the
4:51 pm
reply we received from kenneth clocks office krista clarke has chosen to decline this request and from the u.k. department of health the infected blood inquiry is a cabinet of its leader and therefore they will be the ones best placed to answer your questions beyond that initial acknowledgement of the cabinet office has not responded to our request. and all we could find on the official u.k. national health service website was a report mentioning that victims are entitled to apply for compensation. 2019 and for the 1st time the u.k. government agreed to hear what the victims had to say a public inquiry was opened in london and jason evans group factory's is taking part in it is finally happening it's been. a long road and this is a this train journey is one that i say him countless times over the last 34 years.
4:52 pm
even before jason was born his father was aware of the deadly disease. in spite of the risk of passing on the contamination his baby was born in. and think about how would i have dealt with what my dad went. next year i'll be the same age my dad was when he died. i think about if i was to die i did next year at that age that would have been really a very short life. that weighs heavily on my mind. oh in 1903 tina and. yes.
4:53 pm
accident shall we say. a word i knew pretty soon after and she went to see her doctor. where we were advised really in no uncertain terms not care to note that. it was all in those few months so mixed together and at the time we were still reeling from the shock and the implications of dealing with the time of no sister i could have been positive in which case what we you know. being in a could charge at that time to be in often if you come into the world we didn't know how long we have all this child could have been positive as well as me in which case was it morally right to give birth to a child that i suffered terribly i couldn't walk away from a man who are supposed to love. just when he needed me most and once we found out that i was ok afterwards. he.
4:54 pm
realized that if i was going to be a mother it wouldn't be with richard and i just say with richard he said you're a perfect stream really loving and supportive wife yes she's shifting journey. as it. assists a great sadness to you base this being that you have to have children. a problem if there. really. anything you did with. it you. have to say at the time it seemed easy i didn't feel as if we had any choice. only lazy thing. but hey.

4:57 pm
gather evidence the final decision about how to proceed after that will wrist with the government. i have no doubt that what happened was criminal i think the real question is to walk degree was a criminal i mean nothing a bad minimum we're talking about some form of criminal negligence and perhaps corporate manslaughter. perhaps as high as my i think the inquiry can help direct in some way where where those lines made. their criminal prosecutions have been brought in other countries and they have been successful particularly in france whether they will be brought in this country i suspect not the reason they won't bring them though the crown prosecution service won't be directed to bring those prosecutions it's because it's widely accepted that they would be successful and the only way they can avoid a successful prosecution is to avoid bringing it. the
4:58 pm
public inquiry is expected to continue for at least 2 to 3 years too late for the victims who have already died and to long for those still fighting for their lives every day morning. first witnesses. it was so frightening. i was told i had about a year to live it was a hard time is so frightfully experience it wasn't a life. really treasure exams anymore because you will be dead in a few years so we will actually. i do feel conduit. come out. came out the all $620.00. like it was the tone swan sit down in the house hard enough is no way should have to do it we just wanted to be with them.
