Anti-vaccination advocate faces autism treatment probe

AN anti-vaccination campaigner and former police officer is reportedly under investigation amid claims he was promoting medical treatments to help cure children of autism.

Former Queensland police officer Christopher William Savage had been in Bali for the past six months allegedly providing 'services' he was not allowed to offer  in Australia, News Corp reported.

The services included intravenous infusions of Magnesium and a chemical called DMSO or dimethyl sulfoxide for children with autism, for people with blocked or calcified arteries and aorta, cancer and other ailments.

But last week, when News Corp Australia and Indonesian Health and Immigration authorities began investigating Savage's activities, he packed up and flew home to Amamoor near Gympie.

Mr Savage, a former One Nation candidate, told the Courier-Mail that he was not personally doing the procedures but rather a "specialist" was.

He said the 50 or so people treated were given the infusions at their hotel rooms or for locals -- who were treated for free -- at their homes.

He says the treatment was only available in Bali "because the west including Australia has been hijacked by criminal corporations and their minions".

Mr Savage served in the Queensland Police Service from 1989 but was medically retired in 2011.

Last year, he spoke at a No Jab, No Pay, No Way rally in central Brisbane, claiming his police career was cut short after he started questioning cases of shaken baby syndrome.

"I was a sergeant of police in the police service. I was pushed out after we had a person in custody who was falsely accused of shaken baby syndrome," Savage told the crowd.

He told of being bedridden himself for two weeks after receiving a hepatitis B vaccination.

Mr Savage said he like other police officers and doctors had been 'brainwashed' about the benefits of vaccines until he realised the damage they were doing.
