The reporter.

We spoke in
the High Court canteen.

l looked things up in the medical
register and you were quite right.

Frank Riber was at
Ã…rhus from 1944 to 1951 -

- before being made a consultant
at the Bispebjerg.

So the entire
Medico-legal Council -

- was either employed under
Malmros or at the same hospital.

They must have known him
professionally and in private.

The term ''conflict of
interest'' springs to mind.

l assume that what l'm about
to tell you is off the record.

Of course.
Since 1949 a secret
record has been kept -

- of any patient given Thorotrast.
The patients have
not been informed.

They are ... so to speak
... being followed to the grave.

So far c.300 of the 1 100 given
Thorotrast have died of cancer.

So the National Board of Health
doesn't want it getting out.

There'd be a scandal
of monstrous proportions.

Where should l look?
- The record is a problem of access.

But l hear that it's not quite true
that no warnings were given.

Check out medical periodicals
and textbooks from those days.

Ask Frank Riber if he might
have conflicting interests.
