Age of Autism has been reporting on two scientists, Antonietta Gatti and Stefano Montanari, who had their research seized (including their computer) by Italy’s “financial police” in a raid two weeks ago, just as Prof Gatti was preparing to testify in a military court case in Sardinia. On the face of the events followed a dispute between a non-profit organization and the scientists over their electron microscope. According to a report in the Gazzeta di Modena by Miriam Figluola (24 February):
The non-profit organization accuses the professor of having used the tool for profit and not for scientific research, but there is a court ruling that authorizes Gatti and Montanari to be able to use the instrument and to be compensated for travel expenses. "Money that they never gave us," explains the doctor, claiming she is not an anti-vaccinationist and claims the abnormality of the times. The story has become a political case in Sardinia, because Gatti should conclude her evidence in court on February 28, but data on the analysis of samples taken at Quirra are in the PCs seized in the mysterious operation.
But it is also an unhappy coincidence that the former Italian health minister, Beatrice Lorenzin, put herself forward in the recent Italian election as a candidate for Alternativa Popolare party in Gatti and Montanari’s home city of Modena, and has now been elected there. Lorenzin will be familiar to Age of Autism readers as the instigator under the Gentiloni government of Italy’s vaccine mandates following a deal with GSK. Notoriously, she also told Italian television that 270 children had died in a recent measles outbreak in London, in which claim there was not a single word of truth.
Of course, Gatti and Montanari’s findings are troubling for the mandates project because all the human vaccines they tested for micro and nano-particles turned out to be contaminated. Indeed, their results were confirmed, as reported here, by a European Medical Agency official, Melanie Carr, in the British Medical Journal last year. Given the type of contamination (which will cause harm in the smallest quantities since the body has no means to process the particles), and the number of vaccines routinely administered to an infant, Carr’s claim that this was within acceptable limits looks slender indeed. Short of recalling all the products and admitting decades of negligence, it was probably all the EMA could do - situation management. Last month Lorenzin was complaining that the Dutch had cheated in their bid to host the EMA when it leaves London following Brexit.
