In one of the more interesting stories from last week, the Malaysian Health Ministry became the victim of fraud and forgery, when forged letters were sent out on the letterhead of their National Pharmaceutical Control Bureau letterhead, or some faked version of it, indicating that anyone who sold natural progesterone cream products risked fines and imprisonment.
Malaysian Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah put out a press release stating that the letter was a forgery and that the agency name used on the letters, no longer exists.
The letter was supposedly sent on July 10, and the National Pharmaceutical Control Bureau no longer existed at that time, so somebody may have gotten their hands on old letterhead and used it to their advantage.
But let’s think for a moment, who would benefit from suppressing Natural Hormone Creams? While its conjecture, do I really need to spell this out for you. There’s only one industry which just happens to be filled with some of the most outrageous corporate criminals in the world, that would benefit from this and this would be the pharmaceutical industry.
But that’s a pretty bold move, to use letterhead of a recently defunct government health agency to scare people out of selling natural hormone creams. This may be one of the most desperate and underhanded moves that I have ever seen.
