Wednesday 12 January 2022: French academics of international repute visited Luxembourg to support the petitioners of two important petitions in 1916 and 1950: Prof. Dr. Christian Perronne, author of numerous books on which several teams of lawyers had pounced and searched (in vain) for errors. Dr Alexandra Henrion-Claude and, above all, the internationally renowned virologist and Nobel Prize winner Dr Luc Montagnier also honoured the Grand Duchy with their presence.
Prof. Dr Perronne is a professor of medicine and a doctor of tropical diseases at the Raymond-Poincaré Clinic in Garches in the Hauts-de-Seine department. He is the author of six books and numerous articles on infectious diseases. (Bibliography : https://www.semanticscholar.org/author/5780184)
Both of them, by the way, take great care to emphasize that they are not exposed to any conflicts of interest and have come under defamatory attack for their professional engagement with the current issues. To begin with, we have already reported on the so-called “fact-checkers” and their not-so-independent independence.
Prof. Luc Montagnier was “Director Emeritus” of the CNRS before his retirement and is a Nobel Prize winner in medicine as co-discoverer of the HIV virus. He earned countless awards and prizes in his life as a scientist. He is also the author of several books and an impressive number of scientific articles.

E debate and some reactions
The presence of these experts has not pleased one some politicians and also journalists, so that even in this country the renowned experts are torn apart by people who have no qualifications whatsoever in their fields of knowledge and research.
They are not allowed to question, on the basis of their professional expertise, what is presented to us by politicians and the media as the only solution. Not even now, when the current figures increasingly confirm these assessments.
For two years now, we have therefore been witnessing how the most renowned and qualified scientists are systematically destroyed by the new “cancel culture”. The floor is consistently left to those who—regardless of qualifications and conflicts of interest—are offered the larger media platform. In the last few days, we we have been “treated” to several articles of this kind in the media.
The conclusion of our Minister of Health “that no concrete solution approaches were presented” is also worth discussing:
1. it is theoretically the task of politics, financed by our tax money, to ensure that political decisions are made based on the best available information. However, it is not the job of science or medicine to do the work of politicians. Their job is to communicate, to the best of their knowledge and belief, the results and thoughts of their research in an understandable way.
2. In the almost three hours in the Chamber of Deputies, however, we heard a whole series of concrete and practical proposals for solutions from the invited experts: for example, that there are effective medicines with which the family doctors on the “front line” can ensure that the sick do not have to wait untreated at home until they need to go to hospital. This would be an elementary way to avoid a potential overload of hospitals, where only those for whom the initial treatment does not work would end up. “Both and”, instead of “either or”. This was very specifically about the controversial protocols that do not allow doctors to do just that. The drugs mentioned included Ivermectin, a drug that is used successfully in various countries. In addition, of course, the drug hydroxychloroquine was mentioned, which was falsely portrayed as ineffective in the “Lancet-gate” that was also raised in the House of Representatives, without any media rehabilitation afterwards.
3. This, of course, inherently leads to other possible solutions: first in the prevention of diseases and what politicians are actually paid to do: improve infrastructure rather than economic and efficiency-oriented hospital organization. The systematic reduction of beds, an explosive issue, is an international phenomenon.
The events of this week thus also coincided with our first book review, which we published on Friday, 14 January.
Furthermore, we have again made use of our “right of reply”, published new videos and much more.
