Millar's pounds 90,000 dismissal claim

ANDREW MILLAR, the whistleblower sacked by British Biotech, is claiming around pounds 90,000 for his wrongful dismissal plus undisclosed damages for libel from the drug development company, it emerged yesterday.

Mr Millar, the former head of clinical research, is being sued for breach of contract by British Biotech and yesterday submitted his defence in the High Court case. He was ousted in April after airing his concerns over two of the company's drugs to shareholders.
