CASH INJECTION

The £30m ‘Gigantic Fraud’ on Multiple Sclerosis Sufferers A government-backed drug company claiming to have a ‘Holy Grail’ treatment for Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s and Covid-19 has collapsed and now faces an official probe amid allegations that thousands of vulnerable patients and shareholders are victims of a “gigantic fraud.” Daval International used political connections, celebrity friends and tame journalists to push an unproven serum called Aimspro as ‘a miracle drug [that] gets people out of wheelchairs’ and makes the blind see.  But after raising £30m over the past two decades, mainly from sufferers and their families, the company is being put

PANEL BEATING

The Inside Story of Priti Patel’s Battle for the Daniel Morgan Report The family of Daniel Morgan are right to be “suspicious” of Priti Patel’s last minute block on publication of the long-awaited report into the private investigator’s notorious unsolved murder in 1987. Ludicrous reliance on the old chestnut of “national security” to justify stopping yesterday’s planned publication, after an 8-year inquiry costing £15m, has proved a spectacular own goal. It has left the Home Secretary looking even more shifty and dismissive of a family failed for 34 years by no less than five flawed police investigations and the entire criminal
