Defend Press Freedom

In honor of World Press Freedom Day on May 3rd, we hope you will consider supporting The Media Line this month.
The role of a free press has been at the foundation of democracies around the world for nearly 200 years.
Yet, in many countries, publications are censored and journalists put their lives at risk to report the truth.
A transparent and reliable press covering the important issues of the Middle East is needed more than ever.

The Media Line is proud to assume this responsibility and has over 20 years of success in shaping the role of news reporting in the region. We hope you will support our efforts by making a donation today.

Thank you!

Thank you for confidence in The Media Line.

Israel-based Teva Pharmaceuticals Denies Wrongdoing in US Price-Fixing Lawsuit

Israel-based Teva Pharmaceuticals has denied orchestrating a billion-dollar price-fixing scheme with 19 other generic drug manufacturers, after 44 US states filed a lawsuit alleging malpractice. “The allegations in this new complaint, and in the litigation more generally, are just that – allegations,” Teva officials wrote in a statement. The missive added that the company will “review the issue internally and has not engaged in any conduct that would lead to civil or criminal liability.” The 500-page lawsuit, filed by Connecticut Attorney General William Tong, claims the Israeli pharmaceutical company conspired with competitors to raise prices – in some cases by up to 1,000 percent – on 112 different generic drugs between July 2013 and January 2015. The plaintiffs are seeking unspecified damages and urged the court to take action to restore competition in the market.
