In this letter Dr. Gotzsche reported that "All cases were related to the United States". It is amazing that he did not discussed this most significant result of the analysis.

I believe that the fact that all data originates from the USA means that only this country build a legal system, which pay attention to the painful problems of big pharma misbehavior.

It is not enough to blame the pharma for the crimes. The analyst need to be critical to the Russia, Danish etc. systems. They do not see the misbehavior, do not act. And the only feasible explanation is the corruption.
