Alfons Mensdorff-Pouilly, the husband of the former Austrian health minister Maria Rauch-Kallat, received a kick back of 275.591 euros between March and December 2006 for his role in a deal to buy pandemic flu masks, according to local media.
Mensdorff-Pouilly – a relative of Queen Elizabeth who gave knighthood to the CEO of pandemic vaccine manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline in May – received the payments from Dräger Medical Austria GmbH.
The German company was awarded a contract worth 8 million euros to supply Austria with pandemic flu masks in 2006.
Maria Rauch-Kallat signed the national pandemic plan into law in 2006 allowing for stockpiles of masks, drugs – and also for forced vaccine with a toxic vaccine in the event of a pandemic emergency level 6 declaration by WHO.
In 2009, Baxter created a similar deadly bioweapon when it contaminated 72 kilos of the transmissible seasonal flu with the deadly bird flu virus in its biosecurity level 3 facilities in Orth an der Donau and sent it to 16 labs in four countries.
It has since emerged from leaked diplomatic cables that Baxter’s facilities in Austria are considered critical for US security, raising the issue of whether the contamination was orchestrated by the US government or secret services.
