Yesterday (i.e., 13 April 2011 Danish time, 12 April 2011 American time) I blogged a bit about Poul Thorsen. Now today (i.e., 14 April 2011 Danish time, 13 April 2011 American time) the newest development is a Reuters message sent from Atlanta stating that Thorsen “has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Atlanta” and US authorities are seeking to extradite him from Denmark.There has still been strangely little written about this case in Denmark, — and nothing about the new development. In December 2010 science journalist Jens Ramskov wrote a bit about Poul Thorsen being co-author on the scientific article Parental infertility and cerebral palsy in children even though the University of Aarhus had declared:
Most of the information in Denmark is from a single article in Information by freelancer Sanne Maja Funch published in March 2010. Journalist Ulla Danielsen has also written about the lack of Danish media attention to the case which moneywise seems to be bigger than the Milena Penkowa case. Danielsen has written a few English articles to Age of Autism, — seemingly an anti-vaccine blog as far as I can determine.
Aarhus University will not be able to collaborate with Poul Thorsen in the future. To the extent that other parties collaborating with Aarhus University wish to draw on Poul Thorsen’s expertise, Aarhus University will only accept such collaboration if it has the purpose of securing data or protecting the interests of participating researchers and funding agencies”
