CANBERRA, Australia (LifeSiteNews) — Pharma executives evaded questions from Australian politicians on Thursday regarding heart injuries caused by the Covid jabs and claimed that people were not forced to take the injections.

In a Senate hearing on August 3, Senator Gerard Rennick from the Liberal Party of Australia asked two Pfizer representatives whether their company “understand[s] why the vaccines cause myocarditis and pericarditis? And if not, how can it guarantee that it’s not also injuring other organs? And can you explain the process why the vaccine causes myocarditis and pericarditis?”

The Pfizer representative gave an evasive answer, saying, “Based on our clinical trials and the pharmacovigilance data, as well as real-world evidence, following the distribution now of billions of doses of vaccine, we retain strong confidence in the safety profile of the vaccine.”

He also claimed that the “number of reports of myocarditis remains small.”

Rennick went on to interrupt the Pfizer employee several times to remind him that he had not answered his question about how the mRNA vaccine causes myocarditis.

The Pharma representative finally said that he would “take the questions on notice and come back to the committee with whatever information we can provide.”

The second Pfizer representative claimed during the hearing that he believes “firmly that nobody was forced to have a vaccine.”

“Mandates or vaccines requirements are determined by governments and health authorities. I believe everyone was offered an opportunity to get a vaccine or not get a vaccine, I don’t believe anybody was forced to take a vaccine.”

Contrary to the statements, many Australian doctors, nurses, and those in other professions lost their job for refusing to take the Covid injection.

Pfizer employees received a separate batch of Covid shots

Senator Malcolm Roberts from the One Nation Party asked the Pfizer spokespersons if it is true that Pfizer employees received their own batch of Covid shots that were not tested by Australian regulators.

The Pfizer representative answered in the affirmative, saying that “Pfizer undertook to import a batch of vaccines specifically for the employee vaccination program and that was so that vaccine would be taken from government stocks that was being delivered to clinics as needed.”

The pharma spokesperson also confirmed that Pfizer enforced a vaccine mandate on their employees, saying that “a small number of colleagues departed the company” because of it.

Contracts between Pfizer and Australian government ‘remain confidential’

Roberts asked the pharma representatives if the contracts between the Australian government and Pfizer regarding the supply of the Covid injections “include a clause that negates your indemnity in the event of Pfizer committing a crime such as fraudulent treatment of trial data?”

“Pfizer always abides by the laws and regulations of the markets in which it operates, it obliges by the highest standards for clinical trials and all its operations” one of the Pfizer representatives answered.

Contrary to the claims by the company spokesperson, Pfizer had to pay out billions of dollars for illegally marketing its products over the past two decades. In 2009, Pfizer paid a record $2.3 billion to settle criminal and civil allegations for illegal marketing of its painkiller Bextra.

Pressed again by Roberts to answer his question, the Pfizer representative said the contents of the contract between the pharma giant and the Australian government “remain confidential.”

Moderna unable to provide information about adverse events

During the same Senate hearing regarding the Covid injections, Senator Alex Antic from the Liberal Party asked a representative of pharma giant Moderna how the rate of serious adverse events from Moderna’s mRNA injections compares “with routine traditional vaccine products such as flu vaccines and the like.”

“I don’t have the actual rates of adverse events,” the spokesperson said.

“What I can tell you is that the rates of serious adverse events in our very large, randomized control trials were actually in a similar range to what was observed in placebo,” he claimed.

“You can’t tell me the rates of serious adverse events,” Antic stated. “You realize you’ve come to a senate hearing today for the purposes of exactly that question and you can’t tell me the rates of serious adverse reactions to your product, which I find extraordinary.”

“I can provide that information on notice,” the Modern representative replied.
