FORMER Health secretary and now Iloilo First District Rep. Janette Garin clarified that no arrest warrant had been issued against her by a Quezon City (QC) court in connection with the Dengvaxia-related deaths of two schoolchildren, and that the QC court was merely clarifying if she had filed the bail bond over the case.
The case stems from the death of two youngsters who were vaccinated with the Denvaxia vaccine during a massive anti-dengue drive of administration of President Benigno Aquino 3rd.
Garin said she already filed the bail bond early last year, and that cases filed in other courts over the Dengvaxia-related deaths were already dismissed. Garin explained that only the case filed in Imus, Cavite still exists, which the QC court wanted to clarify is she had already paid for its bail bond.
“The court document also noted that the bail bonds posted before Muntinlupa City; Imus, Cavite and other courts are already considered filed before the Quezon City court. If the court missed my records, I will furnish them a copy of my documents,” Garin said in a statement.
She is facing charges of reckless imprudence resulting to homicide along with three representatives/employees of Sanofi Pasteur Inc.: Stanislas Camart, Jean Louis Grunwald and Jean Francois Vacherand. SOVEREIGNPH
