Subject: Leukemia Patients Arrest by Police Force
Today morning Korean leukemia patients and NGO members visited Novartis Korea to ask a meeting with Mr. Bobe, a president of Novartis Korea. We planed in this meeting to discuss possible ways to solve current problems of access to Glivec, cancer durg patented and solely sold by Novartis. However, in our four-hours protests, we are arrested by the policy officials. In this process, two injured patients are sent to hospital by an ambulance car.
