Man imported fake medicines
Saturday 09 April 2011
A man was jailed for eight years yesterday for his involvement in "the most serious fake medicine scam ever seen in the EU".
Peter Gillespie, 64, of Bovingdon, Hertfordshire, was involved in an operation to import to the UK more than two million doses of counterfeit prescription drugs from China for conditions including prostate cancer, heart disease and schizophrenia.
Croydon Crown Court heard that patients had been put at risk by the fraud.
Four other men were acquitted of all charges.
