Denmark Orders Probe of Officials on AIDS

United Press International

The Danish minister for health today ordered an investigation of leading national health officials who allegedly lied about the use of AIDS-infected blood in transfusions.

Health Minister Elsebeth Kock-Petersen said she had also asked the police to investigate a medical company which processed infected blood products. Her order came after a judge's report said that high-ranking health officials knowingly misled her predecessor by denying that unscreened donor blood had been used at hospitals.
