COLOGNE, Germany--14 Feb--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

60 years after the market launch of Contergan (active ingredient: thalidomide), the greatest pharmaceutical scandal in the Federal Republic of Germany continues to boil. A lawsuit will be heard in the Bonn Regional Court at 12:00 hrs on 15.2.2017 that is more explosive than appears at first sight.

The Contergan victim Andreas Meyer, who was born without arms or legs and is confined to a wheelchair, is suing the former member of the Management Board of the Contergan Foundation, Attorney Karl Schucht, for injunction and rectification.

In a letter to the members of the Family Affairs Committee of the German Federal Parliament, Schucht had asserted that Meyer, as an expert witness at a public hearing of the Committee, had publicly stated various untruths about events connected with the Contergan Foundation.

Meyer had said among other things that for 30 years the Contergan (thalidomide) manufacturer Grunenthal GmbH had had access to the medical files of the Contergan victims in the Contergan Foundation. In addition, Grunenthal had also paid the Foundation's medical experts.

In his letter, Schucht asserted to the contrary that Grunenthal had at no time had access to the medical files of the Contergan victims, but that the files were always kept by the Contergan Fo
