    Re: Egypt - Council Member Accuses Namru- 3 of &quot;Monopoly&quot; in Analysis of Swine Flu Samples

    Im not surprised by this at all, but i do wonder who is really behind the article.

    It sounds like a device to gain control over what becomes public information. with another objective of having equipment purchased for use in some of the governmental hospitals.

    when your in trouble its better to put up a smoke screen to distract the public from the truth.

      Re: Egypt - Council Member Accuses Namru- 3 of &quot;Monopoly&quot; in Analysis of Swine Flu Samples

      toward the very bottom of the Egyptian Plan (article) it speaks a bit about the relationship between the central labs ,(whom are responsible for the primary detection/classifications) then namru confirms findings, it mentions six facilities which can do the testing.

      Again in another section it mentions the (who directly) but fails to mention the regional office located within Egypt.which indicates clearly to me some type of political process is under way.

      its worth noting the plan below was prepared for the bf.
