French business executive, a Director of the C.N.T.S. (Centre National de Transfusion Sanguine) who was involved in the contaminated blood scandal.
On 6/20/1983, an official report recommended that homosexuals, bisexuals, drug users and prisoners be
removed from the list of potential blood donors, a process already applied in Great Britain since 1982. Not only was the report ignored, but as of January 1984, French government officials encouraged the blood bank units to get more blood from prisoners. In July 1984, Garreta
refused a proposition made by the Immuno laboratory to introduce a scheme to heat blood, a process which destroys the HIV virus.
In September 1984, Garreta became director of the C.N.T.S. In January 1985, he and his associates dismissed as fake, a study released by doctors Pinon and Leibowitch, showing that out of 2,000 samples coming
from the Paris welfare department, 0,5 percent of the donors where positive.
In 1985, a batch of blood in the blood-bank was contaminated with the AIDS virus, and two young boys died of AIDS as a result.
On 10/23/1992, Garreta was found guilty of having sold a product with intent to mislead, and sentenced to prison. On 10/28/1992, Garreta, who was in the U.S. when the verdict was pronounced, came back to France where he was arrested and sent to jail. He was given two consecutive four-year terms without parole.
