Do you remember the scandal in the Vivotecnia Experiments Laboratory in Madrid? We reported about it:
The protected witness in the Vivotecnia case accuses the laboratory of manipulating animal tests.
The veterinary technician who recorded the alleged animal abuse that was made public five months ago testifies before the judge about the evidence she collected between 2018 and 2020
Hidden until now in the shadows, the woman who recorded the images that showed the alleged animal abuse in the Vivotecnia laboratory came to light this Wednesday, September 22nd five months later, to answer the questions of the judge as a protected witness.
She answered a myriad of questions about exactly when and what she saw, who was directly involved, and whom she contacted before she began gathering evidence.
She was the only one who could clarify the most relevant details of an investigation that is being carried out in the Colmenar Viejo Court, under summary secrecy since April, when the scandal broke out thanks to an eight-minute video recorded by her between 2018 and 2020 and edited and published by the NGO Cruelty Free International (CFI).
It showed how different workers allegedly mistreat the animals they experimented with.
She arrived nervous, but she did it in a big way, unveiling one more bomb: in the laboratory, she assured, not only was there “repeated abuse” of the animals, but the results of the tests were also manipulated to approve studies that later went on to a second phase of experimentation with human beings.
All the lights pointed towards Carlota Saorsa, the pseudonym by which the person who signs the video with which she began her particular battle of David against Goliath is known, that of an anonymous person against a company whose main business is commissions of studies of the pharmaceutical industry.
