JANE BURGERMEISTER REPORT: ‘ACCOUNTS OF EUROPEAN MEDICINES AGENCY REJECTED BY EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AFTER DRUG SCANDALS’
THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT REFUSED TO APPROVE EMA’S ACCOUNTS
IN MAY 637 MEMBERS OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT VOTED AGAINST AN APPROVAL OF THE ACCOUNTS OF THE EUROPEAN MEDICINES AGENCY. ONLY FOUR MEMBERS WOULD APPROVE

An overwhelming majority of the European Parliament decided in May 2011 not to approve the accounts of the European Medicines Agency (EMA). This according to a report appearing in Danish media on June 10, 2011.
The Agency, that approves and monitors drugs at the European level, is mainly funded by the pharmaceutical industry.
The European Parliament asks for EMA’s financial structure to be analyzed in a report.
The accounts will be treated in the European Parliament for a second time in November.
There are several reasons for this parliamentarian landmark decision.
